On The War Path with Fabian and Chyen Yee

(Saturday 27 Jun'15 @4.00 pm)
Description

Join Fabian and Chyen Yee as they share stories of the war from block 5 to block 4 of Bukit Brown though the lives under siege of Tay Koh Yat to Chong Pang and in between, the Neo Tiew family cluster - the family who lost 40 members in the Japanese massacre at block 2. The cover photo is an image of the mother of Neo Tiew whose name is given to a village in old Singapore, a name that still endures in our landscape today. The war path is strewn with the deterius of war and the enduring sacrifice of those who went before us.
