close Oral History Since 1979, the Oral History Centre has been collecting stories, and building up the nation's treasure trove of memories. Using a structured oral history methodology with comprehensive research and documentation, more than 4,000 interviews have been collected from politicians to street hawkers, medical professionals to prisoners-of-war, artists to entrepreneurs. These individuals provide an intimate account of major events in Singapore history, as well as details of their daily lives in times bygone. Housed at the National Archives of Singapore, the oral history collection adds a personal dimension to Singapore's body of archival records. Click here to view the initiative.
