I've been living and working in Hong Kong since 2016 as an SEO Professional.

In the final moments leading up to the British handover of Hong Kong in 1941 to the Japanese, intoxicated Japanese soldiers broke into St. Stephen’s College, which was at the time being utilised as a hospital. When they were denied access, the Japanese opened fire, killing two doctors. They broke into the wards and assaulted both the injured soldiers and the medical personnel.During their rule of Hong Kong, the Japanese were responsible for a number of atrocities, one of which was the slaughter at St. Stephen’s College, also known as the St. Stephen’s College slaughter. During their rule of the country, the Japanese were responsible for the deaths of an estimated 50,000 civilians and the torturing or imprisonment of many others.
