Event Details

Taking the High Ground: The Morality and Memory of Elizabeth Choy, Singapore's War Heroine, in the Fall of Singapore

The factual account of the fall of Singapore is well-documented and well-known. This talk aims to present a more human side of war by examining the experiences of individuals that lived through it. Karen Hoisington, the grand-niece of Elizabeth Choy, also shares a different side to the story of Singapore's only war heroine through recorded interviews, anecdoctal accounts from living relatives, and a small display of artefacts.

This talk is held in conjunction with the Witness to War: Remembering 1942 exhibition.

As a history enthusiast with an interest in World War Two, Karen has appeared in several Singapore heritage television documentaries and given public talks.
