Japanese War Propaganda, 1931-1945

Between 1931 and 1945, the Japanese government, military authorities and many non-governmental agencies created a wide range of provocative paintings, cartoons, posters, pamphlets, photos and films to justify Japan’s continuous military operations in China, and later in South East Asia and the Pacific. The purpose was to shape citizens into active supporters of the state’s goals and ambitions. The wartime propaganda pushed the nation to mobilize to an extent that by some measures, surpassed even other fascist regimes.

The Historian-in-residence, Mr. Ko Tim-keung curates a series of historical images of Japanese war propaganda from 1931 to 1945 in The Hong Kong Jockey Club University of Chicago Heritage Courtyard and Interpretation Centre.

About the Curator:

Mr. Ko Tim-keung, Historian-in-residence, was formerly council member of Royal Asiatic Society (Hong Kong Branch), member of Antiquities Advisory Board, and museum expert adviser for the Leisure and Culture Services Department. Presently, he serves as member of Collection Committee, Hong Kong Maritime Museum. He has written extensively on various aspects of Hong Kong history.

回顧日本對戰爭的宣傳, 1931-1945

1931至1945年間,日本軍政機關,和許多非政府組織及團體,創造各式各樣煽動性的繪畫、卡通、海報、小冊子、照片及電影等來進行政治宣傳。舉措是為了合理化日本在中國、其後的東南亞和太平洋的持續軍事行動,並務要把國民調教成國家願景的積極支持者,甘心為戰爭犧牲,毫無怨言。其戰時宣傳發揮出的動員力量,依某些標準看來,甚至超越其他法西斯政權。

駐場歷史學家高添強先生,在香港賽馬會芝加哥大學文物庭院及展示中心集合了一系列日本在1931至1945年間對戰爭宣傳的歷史圖片。
