Twisted and revised facts of Korean War being taught in history classes in North Korea.
What is your view on this? Is this fair for the people receiving the revised fact and for the existing or once-existed people whose histories have been changed as to what the North Korean Government wants??
“We risked our lives for a South Korean dream. But many of us feel like boat people* even if we are in the South. I sometimes ask myself a dangerous question. If a war breaks out, should I fight South Koreans or should I shoot at my relatives in the North?”
Ri Kyong of South Korea
*Boat people: A person seeking asylum, refuge or immigration to a new country arriving by sea, either legally or illegally.
Bodies of some 400 Korean civilians were discovered in and around trenches dug in the prison yard of Taejon during the Korean War in September 1950. The victims were bound and slain by the retreating Communist forces of the North before the 24th US Division troops could recapture the city.
Witnesses said that the prisoners were forced to dig the trenches themselves.
