About “Defending the Little Red Dot”

The responsibility of defending a nation rests on its people. Every year, Singapore commemorates Total Defence Day on 15 February, which marks the fall of Singapore in 1942. For this year’s Total Defence Day, the National Library Board presents Defending the Little Red Dot, a campaign packed with talks, book displays and film screenings, highlighting stories of resistance and resilience during the Japanese Occupation, and the importance of preparedness in the digital age.
