  9. 9. Section B Compulsory Source-Based Questions [25 marks] 23. Syonan-to: The Years of Japanese Occupation Read and examine the sources carefully and answer all the questions that follow. Source A: The following extract explains why the Japanese arrested the Chinese in Singapore. Many Chinese in Syonan-to have been in sympathy with the government in China, and many of them supported the Chinese government in China. Moreover, they have helped the British Army, forming volunteer corps and secretly sabotaging the military activities of the Japanese Army. Thus, it is most important to sweep away these disloyal Chinese elements and to establish peace and promote the welfare of the population. However, many Chinese continued to resist the Japanese rule in their own secret ways. . Source B: An extract about the ‘Sook Ching’ campaign carried out by the Japanese in Singapore. On 18 February 1942, all Chinese males between the ages of 18 and 50 were ordered to report to various screening centres for examination. The order, the brainchild of Colonel Masanobu Tsuji and issued by the Japanese 25th Army, was carried out all over the island. There were 28 centres in all. At some centres, there were hooded men before whom the people had to march past. If any of the hooded men nodded his head, the person so marked would be marched off to a parked lorry nearby. The men in the lorries were taken to remote areas such as Punggol, Changi and Bedok where they were shot. The Chinese did not know if they would still be alive the following month, as so many of them were executed. Source C: An oral history account by a survivor, Soon Kim Seng. People would be wondering when their turn would be for the Kempeitai to come and take them away. All someone needed to do was to spread a false rumour or say something about somebody and the Kempeitai would look out for that person and say, ‘Oh, you are pro-British, pro-American or pro-China, or you are a black marketeer.’ They would accuse you of anything and they could just come and take you away for questioning and detain you. This happened regardless of one’s skin colour or faith. 9
