People at a grave site

A photo taken by Foo Chin Hwa in 1962 during the exhumation of mass graves of Operation Sook Ching. It shows a group of people at a grave site. The site is sheltered with an overhanging sheet or tent, to protect the site from inclement weather. Two men are squatting on the ground, with one of them placing or arranging skulls on a bamboo mat. There are also a few onlookers including a young girl standing near the scene. A large urn is also seen in the foreground of the picture. Title devised by Library staff.
