Japanese Occupation newspaper in library portal

21 January 2017) The Singapore National Library’s NewspaperSG portal has been given a “historical” boost.

Since last month, six historical newspapers have been added, bringing the total number of digitised titles to 41 – up from just 14 when the portal was launched in 2010.

The new publications include English-language newspaper Shonan Times, or Syonan Shimbun, which acted as the propaganda mouthpiece of the Japanese government during the Japanese Occupation of Singapore.

The Straits Times has the story in full.
