75 years after the fall of Singapore, rediscover this watershed event through a special international exhibition at the National Museum of Singapore. Hear first-hand accounts from witnesses to war: ordinary men and women whose lives were upheaved by the outbreak of hostilities in Singapore in 1942. The exhibition presents the complexities of the events that led to the fall of Singapore, paying homage to the extraordinary tenacity with which these men and women bore their circumstances.

Featuring artefacts from 10 overseas museums and institutions, Witness to War will also explore how Singapore’s fall was part of a wider campaign waged by the Japanese Empire across the Pacific.

The exhibition will also feature two special artworks by Australian artist Angela Tiatia and Singaporean artist Debbie Ding. They were developed as part of the first Australia-Singapore Joint Artist Residency exchange programme, which saw the artists participate in one-month residences at the Australian War Memorial and the National Museum of Singapore. The artworks are intimate, evocative responses to Singapore and Australia’s shared World War Two history, and will be displayed outside the exhibition galleries.

A Child’s Perspective
A special family activity space, entitled “A Child’s Perspective”, has been set up within the exhibition gallery to provide a place for families to guide their young ones – aged 7 to 12 – through the complex topic of war. This activity space offers young visitors a glimpse of what war in Singapore was like for young people such as themselves, and includes a variety of interactive activities, such as the opportunity to explore a makeshift air-raid shelter.

Young Journalist’s Trail
Two activity booklets have been designed to enable young audiences to go on an interactive quest through the National Museum’s three war-related galleries including Witness to War: Remembering 1942 and the Life in Singapore: Surviving Syonan gallery. Download the activity booklets for young audiences aged 7 to 12 here, and for young audiences aged 13 and above here.
