Art is the expression of the soul. Proud to support this project which brings to life more than any film image the courage, innovation and suffering of these brave men whose young lives were destroyed. Honouring my father Pvte L. W. Knott RAMC who survived hell. Kathy Knott

The Art of Survival is an exhibition to remember the sacrifices that my father and thousands of others made as prisoners of war. It deserves our generous support.

My father was a FEPOW after his ship, HMS Exeter, was sunk. He and all FEPOWs deserve to be remembered with love and gratitude. The exhibition will be a fitting tribute to them, thank you.

My dad was a prisoner of war in Changi and he brought home art he did in the camp,so this cause is a great way of remembering those that suffered and their creative skills

My father edited a magazine in Japaneses POWcamps, containing some high quality art work. This achievement, in dire human conditions, seems extraordinary. Well done on bringing POW art to the public gaze.
