Never Forgotten: The War in the Far East and in Modern Memory

Never Forgotten: The War in the Far East and in Modern Memory

Join historians from the four VJ75 partner organisations as they explore the road to Victory over Japan and discuss how it is remembered in myth and memory.

VE Day, on 8 May 1945, marked the end of the Second World War in Europe. But many thousands of Armed Forces personnel were still engaged in bitter fighting in the Far East.

In this debate, historians from the National Army Museum, the National Museum of the Royal Navy, the Royal Air Force Museum and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission will explore the roles on land, sea and air throughout the Far East campaign, and examine how it continues to be commemorated. This panel will be hosted by journalist and author Shrabani Basu.

This event is part of our VJ75: Never Forgotten series.
