World War 2 part 2 The Occupation

The Japanese occupation of Singapore had a major impact on both the psyche and the history of Singapore; things would literally never be the same.

Learn about the 3 and a half years that Singapore was Syonan-To, and the reality and repercussions of that occupation, including the Sook Ching massacres.

We will visit WW2 sites, including the Sook Ching Memorial site, Changi beach, Changi Chapel & Museum and the Ford Factory, with experienced tour guide Jimmy.

Hear his personal recollections of the impact of the war years on his family, his community and the country as a whole.

The tour will include refreshments in Changi village or museum.
