The Hongkong News offers scholars the undiluted voice and mindset of the Japanese administration of occupied Hong Kong from New Year 1941 to mid-August 1945. This significant Japanese Occupation holding of the Hongkong News started publication on 31st December 1941, six days after the Christmas Day surrender of the British Crown Colony, and lasted until 17th August 1945, the day the Imperial Rescript ordered Japanese forces to surrender to the Allies. Hongkong News traces Japan’s progress from Hongkong’s Imperial overlord to abject surrender, through large-scale internment and assurances of certain victory.
