In September 2017, the National Museum of Singapore launched Witness to War: Remembering 1942, a special international exhibition to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the fall of Singapore. In conjunction with Witness to War, an international conference - Exhibiting the Fall: Remembering and Representing War and Its Aftermath in Asia - was held at the museum on 4 & 5 September 2017. The conference brought international academics and museum practitioners together in conversation about the ways in which Asia's violent mid-20th-century history is understood and represented. It was co-organised with the War Memoryscapes in Asia Partnership, an international, interdisciplinary network of academic specialists funded by the Leverhulme Trust. This publication is a collection of papers presented at the conference.
