Abstract: 
This article analyses why some countries in South East
Asia have set aside a national day to remember the Japanese Occupation
in the cause of nation-building and why other countries have
tended to choose not to remember the Japanese Occupation because
for them it does not further nation-building. Singapore, the
Philippines and Burma have all remembered their experience of
struggle and sacrifice during the Second World War to further
national unity. However, most South East Asian countries have
chosen at a national level not to commemorate this undoubtedly
major watershed in the region’s history.
