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.

Invitation: 2019 Open House Activities in the Institute of Taiwan History on October 26
2019-10-14

This year Academia Sinica hosts thematic exhibitions of Black Hole. The Institute of Taiwan History also features fascinating exhibits and interactive games for our audience. Don’t miss the chance to participate in the fun activities!

We select trade letters related to Chinese herbal medicine from the significant archives: Tai-yi Hao Papers of Nagasaki (1889-1959). Our exhibition, Kang, Tai, Jian, yi—Taipei Commercial Letters Related to Chinese Herbal Medicine, features correspondence between Tai-yi Hao and stores in Taipei. It presents the import process of the herbal medicine, such as American ginseng, edible bird's nest from Thailand and Vietnam, Korean ginseng, snow fungus, and Kanto velvet antler. The medicine was displayed in shop windows in Dadaocheng, attracting customers to buy for recovering from or preventing illness. Furthermore, our professional guide will introduce historical context and interesting stories of the commercial letters to help you figure out related questions.

In addition, our interactive activities include inviting the audience to play a computer game. The player will be a staff member of Tai-yi Hao. After completing the tasks of arranging goods in the shop and storehouse, you will receive a limited gift!

The activity will be held on Saturday, October 26, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., on the 8th floor in the North Wing of Humanities and Social Sciences Building. Come to visit the Institute of Taiwan History and explore our exhibition! Don’t pass up the chance to learn more about Taiwan history or you may wait for another year!
