Chiang Kai-shek, the institution is perceived as an important asset for information on the 1937-1945 second Sino-Japan war.
This is according to Chen Yi-hua, a special commissioner of Academia Historica, who likened Academia Historica Thursday to the US-based Hoover Institution, which owns Chiang Kai-shek’s diaries.
“If the Hoover Institution is the World War II research site in the West, Academia Historica is its counterpart in the East,” Chen told CNA.
Chen said that the Chiang Kai-shek archive has become one of the institution’s anchors, as it is full of important data on the second Sino-Japan war. [FULL STORY]
