Musée du Mémorial 17 June 2015

by Aazer Siddiqui

In the morning today, we all finished our skits and performed them for each other. They were all pretty funny, and I’m glad that I got to see them all. In the afternoon, we went to the war memorial. It was a really well designed museum, with a snaking path that led you to each facet of the war, including the pre- and post-war eras. The museum included a lot of artifacts as well, and also a good deal of video footage. It was really surprising to learn that the Chinese lost the most in the war in terms of civilian casualties, around 20 million people. The movie afterwards was not a huge success with its confusing format, but all in all, it was an enlightening experience.
