Gwangju to Commemorate the 64th Anniversary of the June 25th Korean War

 

The city of Gwangju has announced it will host an event at the Bitgoeul Citizens' Culture Center to commemorate the Korean War that broke out on June 25th in 1950 and lasted for three years.

As part of an effort to honor the fallen soldiers and Korean people who were sacrificed during the fratricidal war between South and North Korea, the commemorative event will feature the participation of local patriot groups and citizens as well as incumbent mayor Gang Woon-tae and municipal heads in the city.

This year's commemorative event includes a photo exhibition of the Korean War, a screening of Korean War-related video clips as well as a display of the United Nations member nations that took part in the war.

Additional events include a National Security Debate, a Korean War battlefield pilgrimage and a Student Speech Competition themed after peace and unification of Korean peninsula.
