Your support helps us to finally capture the history of Singapore-German relations in its entirety!

Singapore’s “Bicentennial” celebrations in 2019 have brought about a remarkable increase in interest in Singapore’s history and it has also provided evidence that Singaporeans are eager to learn more about the many contributions made by other countries and nationalities to its impressive rise as a nation. However, no comprehensive publication on Singaporean-German history and the development of economic, cultural and political relations has been published so far, even though there are numerous examples reaffirming the remarkable progress particularly since Singapore’s independence in 1965.

It has been long overdue for us to fill this gap! With your help, the publication aims to offer an easy-to-read and comprehensively illustrated approach to Singaporean-German relations in order to enthrall both newcomers and long-term residents. By linking Singaporean viewpoints and its historic milestones to Germany-related events, the book will definitely find its audience far beyond the German-Singaporean community and experts.

The book which is being extensively researched by a German-Singaporean team and compiled by Sabine Hein, traces bilateral relations back to the first settlers in the early 19th century and will follow the extension of ties through the following decades in all relevant fields until Singapore’s most recent rise to become a prosperous city-state it is today. Content will be presented both in German and English making the book accessible for both German and English speakers.
