Designs on our historic past

Designs on our historic past. [Newspaper] (2017)


The lithographed posters with a drawing of a Malay man with a songkok on his head holding a book with a Japanese title on it were distributed throughout the nation. The year was 1942, and the whole of Malaya had fallen into the Imperial Japanese Army’s hands.
During the Occupation, the Japanese sought to change the common language of Malaya to Japanese. Posters in Malay and Chinese were posted and distributed everywhere, persuading Malayans to adopt the Japanese culture.
