Photo ex­hi­bi­tion to be held on ROC-Ja­pan war

The China Post - - LOCAL -

A photo ex­hi­bi­tion pre­pared to celebrate the 70th an­niver­sary of the Re­pub­lic of China's vic­tory in the 1937-1945 war of re­sis­tance against Ja­pan will be held at the Sun Yat-sen Me­mo­rial Hall in Taipei July 3-30.

As part of the cel­e­bra­tion of the vic­tory and the 70th an­niver­sary of Tai­wan's retro­ces­sion, the Chi­ang Wei-shui com­mem­o­ra­tive ex­hi­bi­tion will also be held at the me­mo­rial hall from July 3-Aug. 23.

Yi­lan-born Chi­ang (1891-1931), founder of the Tai­wanese Cul­tural As­so­ci­a­tion and the Tai­wanese Peo­ple's Party, is seen as one of the most im­por­tant fig­ures in Tai­wan's re­sis­tance move­ment against Ja­panese colo­nial rule.

The two events are be­ing jointly or­ga­nized by the Taipei- based Cen­tral News Agency, the Sun Yat­sen Me­mo­rial Hall and the Chi­ang Wei-shui Cul­tural Foun­da­tion with guid­ance from the Min­istry of Cul­ture.

The photos to be dis­played tell lit­tle-known sto­ries about the lives of peo­ple liv­ing in China and Tai­wan dur­ing the war against Ja­pan and dur­ing Ja­pan's colo­nial rule of Tai­wan in the early 1900s, ac­cord­ing to the or­ga­niz­ers.

The two ex­hi­bi­tions will later move to the Na­tional Changhua Liv­ing Art Cen­ter July 15-Aug. 2, the Na­tional Tainan Liv­ing Art Cen­ter, South­ern Tai­wan Sept. 9-21, and the Na­tional Hs­inchu Liv­ing Art Cen­ter in Hs­inchu County, North­ern Tai­wan, Oct. 1-13.
