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.

New Site: Map of Formosa Under Dutch and Spanish Rule
A new site "Maps of Formosa under Dutch and Spanish Rule" was built up. It contains 5 articles by Assistant Prof. Ang Kaim(翁佳音) on Taiwan maps, a map database and a bibliography database. The databases are presented in a catalogue style, providing users a channel to access map-related resources.

The new site had been demonstrated at "New Perspectives on Geographic Space - International Symposium on Historical Cartography" held by National Palace Museum on November 6th and 7th, drawing many attentions.
The site will be updated continuously, and any suggestion is welcomed.
