Archives Related to the February 28 Incident and the White Terror

2017 marked the 70th anniversary of the February 28 Incident and 30 years since the martial law was lifted. Although the February 28 Incident and the White Terror are not forbidden topics in Taiwan society, many relevant archives are yet to be acquired and disclosed. Since its establishment, the Institute of Taiwan History has striven to collect folk papers, such as the following records related to the February 28 Incident and the White Terror: Historical Materials Related to the February 28 Incident and White Terror, Yang Zhao-jia Collection, Chen Cheng-po Paintings and Papers, Yeh Sheng-ji Papers, Chen Wen-xing Papers, Chen Zhong-tong Papers, The Diary of Lin Xian-tang, and The Diary of Wu Xin-rong.

Surrounded by mountains and a river, Tamsui, which used to be called “Hobe”, has always attracted senior artists in Taiwan. Exotic and traditional architecture left by the Dutch, Qing Dynasty, and Japanese feature its historic characteristics, attracting wandering literati. Similarly, artists are inspired by this historic town as well. The paintings of Tamsui are a spectacular page of Taiwan’s art history. Since its establishment, the Archives of the Institute of Taiwan History have continuously collected and compiled personal papers, family papers and institutional archives. Part of this involves collecting and digitizing Taiwan senior artists’ works and their personal papers. In recent years, the digital archives of the Chen Cheng-po Paintings and Papers, Yen Shui-long Paintings and Papers, Chen Zhi-qi Paintings and Papers, and Pu Tian-sheng Sculptures and Papers are open in sequence. Now, let us follow Chen Zhi-qi, Chen Cheng-po, and Yen Shui-long’s steps, accompanied by archival materials such as photographs and postcards, and start a journey to Tamsui across time and space!
