76 years after the Fall of Singapore, very little is known about Unit 731, a Japanese biological and chemical warfare research and development department, and its role in breeding rat fleas that were used to spread bubonic plague during World War Two. Unit 731 operated under secrecy, with its Singapore branch located in the College of Medicine Building.

 

Hear from history researcher Lim Shao Bin, as he shares this hidden history through his personal collection and archival research.
