Taiwan’s wartime history must not be forgotten, academics and civic organization leaders said yesterday, as they invited the public to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the “Taipei Air Raid” (台北大空襲) with live music and a photography exhibition on Sunday.
Hosted by the Taiwan Nation Alliance (TNA) and Taiwan Society North, the commemoration event is to begin at 7pm in front of the Presidential Office Building on Taipei’s Ketagalan Boulevard, with musical performances, video presentations and other activities.
Organizers said the event is to remember an important chapter in Taiwan’s history, which many Taiwanese have little knowledge about, adding that wartime memories and lessons must not be forgotten. [FULL STORY]
