Jing-Mei White Terror Memorial Park
A former military justice academy complex in the south of Taipei
that during the White Terror (see under Taiwan
and 2-28 Museum
) was used a military court and a detention centre for political prisoners. It closed in 1991.
In 2001 it was turned into a memorial and later became part of the National Human Rights Museum. The exhibition in the former barracks provides some insights into the life and hardships endured by the victims of this regime. And you can see the courtrooms, cell tracts, shackles and chains, workshops (for forced labour), the laundry, the canteen, the visitors room and other elements. English translations are provided.
Opening times: Tuesday to Sunday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Location: at 131 Fusing Road, Taipei 23150.
