Lim Bo Seng
A successful businessman, Lim Bo Seng became synonymous with the anti-war movement in Singapore during World War II. His commitment towards the resistance campaign against Japanese aggressors came with a hefty price. He was to suffer a heart-wrenching separation from his family and eventually to sacrifice his own life. His incarceration in a prison for anti-Japanese activisits was the ultimate test of faith.
Yet the true hero never once faltered, not even under the harshest conditions imaginable. Lim fought his captors with his one and only weapon - an unbroken spirit. He died in triumph and his legacy lives on.
