You are staffing the SG60 Diamond Jubilee (for the year 2025) working committee. As part of a collection of key historical moments in Singapore’s national history, you have been asked to put together a first-hand account (by a witness or participant) of Separation, and its immediate aftermath. The committee expects a history that highlights the immediacy of the event through personal voices and experiences, and not a mere regurgitation of published books and / or articles. The committee also expects a separate submission explaining the main messages of your history and the choices of primary sources.
