The defence and fall of Singapore during World War Two and the subsequent Japanese occupation is an effective topic within the wider study of Singapore history that we can use to explore these questions. This talk will discuss when, how and why the defence and fall of Singapore became a central topic in the wider study of memory, heritage and history relating to Singapore. It will present observations about how these studies evolved over time and from place to place, and where they seem to be heading today, as well as discuss what shapes memories in history across different vantage points.

This edition of HistoriaSG is presented in collaboration with the Department of History, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, National University of Singapore.
