The Imperial Japanese conquest of Malaya and Singapore in 1942 was a globally significant event with far-reaching ramifications. To impress upon the subjects of their newly-seized lands, as well as upon their own people and the world that they were invincible, the Japanese military created a diverse range of wartime propaganda.

Some of the most easily mass produced and popular forms of this propaganda were souvenir postcards, posters, prints and magazines, which included images and artworks featuring the local people, places and battles.

This presentation by Garth O’ Connell, a visiting curator from the Australian War Memorial, will showcase and explore some original examples of this rarely-seen Japanese wartime propaganda of Singapore.

 

Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.
