The Old Ford Factory is the site where the British surrendered to the Japanese on 15 February 1942. The Memories at Old Ford Factory retells the hardships faced by those who lived through the Japanese Occupation from 1942-1945.
The historical site houses a permanent exhibition, “Syonan Years: Singapore Under Japanese Rule 1942-1945”, which traces the events leading to, during and after the Japanese Occupation, and features oral history accounts, archival records and other personal effects which belong to World War II survivors.
