A collaboration between the National Archives of Singapore and the National Museum of Singapore, 45-65: Liberation, Unrest… a New Nation is an exhibition that will be at the National Museum of Singapore from 7 July to 27 January 2013, chronicling the difficult journey of Singapore’s independence from 1945 to 1965.

The exhibition brings visitors through the tumultuous period of post-war recovery and illustrates the challenges and hardships of building a nation then. At the same time, the awakening of a national consciousness further contributed to the determined struggle for decolonisation and self-rule. The events of these 20 years of rebuilding a nation, independence from the British and separation from Malaysia – set the stage in our quest for a national identity.
