Sybil Kathigasu: Malaysia’s forgotten heroine


When, oh when will people like Sybil Kathigasu be given due recognition and held up as models of courage and service to the people?
Sybil was brutally tortured by Japanese interrogators when she refused to disclose details of resistance movement members for whom she and her husband had provided medical treatment.
She died at the age of 48, after the Occupation had ended, from an undetected infection that had spread from her fractured jaw.
Their dispensary at 74 Main Street, Papan, still stands to this day:
