1942-1945: Japanese Occupation in Singapore
Everything changed during the 3 years and 8 months of hardship under the japanese rule. Singapore came to be known as Syonan-to, often translated as 'light of the south'. The country was nothing like its new name. Instead, it was a period of darkness in the history of Singapore when innocent people were gruesomely killed and tortured.
Trace the path during this tour to learn about what happened, where it happened and to remember the people who have lost their lives fighting for Singapore.
Behind the facade of this very successful and prosperous nation lies a past that we will forgive but never forget.
