SINGAPORE - In line with the 75th anniversary of the fall of Singapore, the National Museum of Singapore will be presenting international exhibition Witness To War: Remembering 1942. Admission is free for Singapore citizens and permanent residents and the exhibition will run from Sept 23 to March 25, 2018.

It will also explore a shared regional history because Singapore's fall was part of a larger campaign by the Japanese Empire across the pacific. One of the most prominent artefacts is the personal diary of Singapore war hero Lim Bo Seng, that will be on display for the first time.
