Receipt issued by the Overseas Chinese Association (OCA)

The receipt was issued by the OCA to record the amount of money 'donated' by the Chinese community towards the Japanese war effort. The donations were part of a drive by the Japanese military administration to force the Chinese community to donate a total sum of $50 million. Such documents capture the sort of policies that were implemented by the Japanese military and show how they affected the Chinese community.
