The National Human Rights Museum will remind future generations about those who
suffered persecution during the White Terror era. That was the word from President Tsai Ing-wen on Thursday.
Tsai was speaking at the unveiling ceremony of the new National Human Rights Museum on the offshore Green Island. The island used to be the site of a jail where political prisoners from the White Terror era were held. The White Terror was between 1949 and 1987 where martial law was imposed and political dissidents were persecuted.
At the museum’s opening ceremony, President Tsai said she hopes to take advantage of the new resources and enhance human rights education across Taiwan. She said the education must extend to those working in the public sector to ensure that the government won’t repeat past mistakes. [SOURCE]
