Photo exhibition to be held on ROC-Japan war
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.
