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 and the deeds of the East River Column guerrilla fighters in protecting Hong Kong under Japanese Occupation.
