Thailand has been named as one of the most important destinations in Southeast Asia for people who survived the Nazi occupation.
In the name of the Thais, an honorary restaurant named after the Thaksin Shinawatra, is set to open in Bangkok on Oct. 6, according to the Bangkok Post.
The establishment will offer a menu of traditional Thai dishes, as well as Vietnamese and Chinese dishes.
Thai cuisine is widely known for its high quality ingredients and quality cooking.
The restaurant’s name comes from the Thasakas, or Thai mountains, in the far west of Thailand.
A plaque was dedicated to the restaurant’s founder, Thaksi Shinawatras, who was executed by the Nazis for his resistance against British rule.
Thailand was one of several Southeast Asian countries that were liberated by the Allies in 1945.
The United States officially recognized the country as a nation in 1963, but many Thais still feel it has not received a fair share of the recognition.
In 2013, Thai Foreign Minister Phanjiboon Kuanwat was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to help the country rebuild after World War II.
The Thasaks are one of seven countries in Southeast Asian that were officially recognized as part of the Trans-Siberian Railway in 1959, after the war ended.
Thais, who made up roughly two percent of the population at the time, remained under British rule for nearly three decades, with the British calling them “a troublesome people who could not be tolerated,” according to The Associated Press.
Many of the island’s islands were conquered by the Chinese and later annexed into Thailand.
The islands are home to some of the country’s largest ethnic and cultural groups, including the Thai Buddhist majority, as many of the islands have been used as a military base by the Thai military during its war with China.
