Before World War II Changi was a small and peaceful village on the edges of this small island, with the Japanese invasion of the island this sleepy village was transformed into a horrific symbol of the inhumanity of man.
Changi Museum and Chapel is a poignant memorial to the atrocities inflicted upon both the civilian and military population of Singapore. With the use of photographs, letters and personal artefacts the suffering inflicted on the people is powerfully illustrated.
One personal testimony in particular is particularly moving, that of a young wife who was horribly tortured while her new husband was forced to witness her suffering and degradation.
Forget ‘attractions’ like Sentosa, the Garden at the Bay the Changi Museum is a must visit and one that will live in the memory for many years.
Take the audio visit but it can sometimes be a little disjointed and may not match with the exhibits.
