Each February 15 marks the tragedy of the Fall of Singapore in 1942, that led to a brutal period of occupation by the Japanese Imperial Army. Considered as one of the greatest defeats of the British Army, it had drastic impacts on the lives of the ordinary people of Singapore. Tiong Bahru was the site of where preparations for the War were first made for our civilian population, such as our Air Raid Shelter, which is part of the conservation estate. What did the residents of Tiong Bahru go through before and during the Occupation?

SHS and URA are organising this CAKAP HERITAGE for our pioneers to share their valuable experiences so that we can understand the horrors of war and the price of peace. There is also a chance to view an episode of War Time Kitchen.What are your memories of World War 2? How did theair raids affect you? What did you eat during the War? How did you live? Your memories are important, and sharing them will keep them alive for future generations. We will transcribe and record your memories, for more to understand our shared history via URA’s Conservation Portal. This event is multilingual. We welcome sharing in any of the common languages of Singapore.

This event is also supported by the Tiong Bahru Community Centre and the Tiong Bahru Heritage Volunteers.

每年的2月15日,是我们纪念新加坡在1942年沦陷,被日本皇军的铁爪侵略强占家园的日子。那场大英帝国史上最可悲的战事败绩,对于无数的新加坡市民来说,更唤来了三年多艰辛苦难的岁月,而当时住在崭新的中峇魯住宅区的居民也都无法幸免。当年殖民地政府为即将降临的抗战工作和防御功能精心设计和建造了时为最先进的民间防空设备,因此在中峇鲁历史保留区内,今天还留下这座新加坡最早的民事防空壕。在烽火岁月里挣扎求存的中峇鲁居民们,是如何在空袭警报声中度过朝不保夕的日子呢?新加坡传统文化协会和市区重建局联合主办的这场“回首话当年”活动,邀请到多位历尽沧桑的前辈们来叙述那些刻骨铭心的往事,届时还可观赏到一段关于战时人们怎么自力更生吃饭做菜的影片。

您在空袭的时刻做过什么防备?三餐是如何解决?欢迎您来谈谈抗战和日据时期的日子。

您的回忆是留给下一代极珍贵的遗产,希望您把这些历史见证与我们分享,让我们把这段历史记录下来留给后世,也欢迎您到访市区重建局的建筑保留入口网站了解和提供相关资讯(URA Conservation Portal)。

本活动以多种语言进行,欢迎您使用新加坡任何通用的语言或方言参与。

本活动由中峇鲁民众联络所及中峇鲁历史街区义务导览员协办。
