Gallery 9: The Japanese Occupation (1941-1945)

Originally a casemate for soldiers, this gallery features the conditions in Hong Kong during the occupation period. Japanese military rule, life in a prisoner-of-war camp, civilian life in Hong Kong during the period, the East River Column (the anti-Japanese guerrilla forces) and the Japanese surrender are featured. Such artefacts as various documents of the occupation period, military notes and artefacts from members of the East River Column are displayed. With audio handsets, visitors can listen to the interviews made with the prisoners-of-war, veterans and civilians to have their personal accounts of life during Japanese Occupation.
