Social Impacts of the Japanese Occupation

Social Impacts of the Japanese Occupation

This source is from the Changi museum, a section about the social impacts of the Japanese Occupation. I chose this source as it shows the horrors that families have to go through during the Japanese Occupation. The source states that Harry Stagden was sent to coal mines to work while the children’s mother was killed during the war. This shows that many people lost their family members during the Occupation and that the teenagers were forced to do hard labour.

My grandma’s stories: Japanese Occupation, of Horror and Terror

My grandma’s stories: Japanese Occupation, of Horror and Terror

This source is from an online blog by Jie Yi See about her grandmother's experiences during the Japanese Occupation. I chose this source as it describes very vividly the problems that the author's family had about food rationing. The source states that since the rice ration was inadequate to meet the family's needs, the author's father planted tapioca, sweet potato, corn and groundnut as supplement. This shows the work that needs to be put into keeping the family fed and full. This also shows that the ration that they received was not enough to support one whole family which is one of the things that the people feared.

Papa as a Little Boy Named Ah Khoon

This source is from a book by Andrew Tan Chee Khoon who was a teenager during the Japanese Occupation. I chose this source as it touched extensively on the effects of the Japanese Occupation on families and how each of them feared for each other. This source states that Mr Tan's stepbrother was ruthlessly decapitated in public by the Japanese and his father and uncle were forced to watch the procedure. This shows the impact the Japanese Occupation had on families.
