Changi Chapel & Museum: Remembering the Internees and Legacies of Changi
Format: Print Book
The newly revamped Changi Chapel and Museum reopened in May 2021, and commemorates the prisoners of war (POWs) and civilians interned in Singapore’s Changi prison camp from 1942 to 1945. This catalogue is intended as a narrative guide to the exhibition. Featuring essays and key insights from the exhibition’s curators, personal stories, and highlight artefacts from each zone, it offers an intimate glimpse into the POW and civilian internee experience during the three and a half years of Japanese military occupation. Each of the featured stories and artefacts serves as a witness to the challenges of life in captivity, and as a testimony to the internees’ resilience and fortitude in those turbulent times. It is our hope that these stories will connect with, engage and inspire existing and future generations about the legacy of Changi camp.
