This source is found online, in the infopedia, which talks about the Sook Ching which involved many male teenagers as well. I chose this source because this source talks about both the positive and negative changes the Japanese had brought to those living in Singapore at that time, such as bringing fear and anger to the Chinese population, and also causing them to be braver and stronger.
This source is from a library book called " In the grip of a crisis : The experiences of a teenager during the Japanese Occupation of Singapore,1942-45". In this book, Rudy Mosbergen, who was a teenager at that time, shares his experiences through this book and tells me more about what the Kempetai officers did to the many people. For example, the people were tortured by The Kempetai by being given the water treatment. There were also many other different kinds of tortures The Kempetai gave at that time, which were mentioned in the book.
Being a teenager at that time, the author of this book; Rudy Mosbergen, shares his experiences. Other than talking about The Kempetai, he also wrote about what the Sook Ching was about. He gave information on the Sook Ching screenings and how many were affected. For instance, from what he mentioned, males who were aged from eighteen to fifty had to undergo the Sook Ching screenings and anyone who failed these screenings had to be sent to a particular destination to dig their own graves and be shot from behind.
