About the Exhibition

December 1941 to August 1945 was the darkest period of Hong Kong’s history in the Second World War. During the “Three years and eight months” under the Japanese Imperial Army’s occupation, Hong Kong suffered from the ravages of war, with fear and helplessness permeating citizens’ everyday lives. Featuring old photos, documents, newspapers, military notes, and other artifacts of the occupation period, this exhibition gives us a glimpse into the severe hardship endured by previous generations.

The above events will be conducted by Mr. Cheng Po Hung, collector and owner of the exhibits. More information can be found at: http://library.ust.hk/exhibitions/japanese-occupation/
