From 16 February 2016, Memories at Old Ford Factory (MOFF) will be closed for a revamp for a year to create an experience that will aid in our understanding of life during the Japanese Occupation. The reopening of MOFF will be on 17 February, just in time to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the start of the Japanese Occupation.

To tell a better story of the people during World War II, National Archives of Singapore (NAS), an institution of the National Library Board (NLB) will make a public call for archives today, 12 March 2016 from 10am to 4pm. Members of the public may come forward to donate any historical materials from 1937 to 1954 that documents events such as the China Relief Fund efforts to aid anti-Japanese war efforts in China; the Japanese Occupation here; and the post-war reconstruction when the British returned to Singapore. Leave your legacy at the revamped MOFF exhibition gallery by contributing to Singapore’s rich history.

The call for archives will take place at Level 10 of the National Library Building and letters, diaries, photographs, documents or audio-visual records are welcomed for donation.
