台灣無名戰士紀念碑(Monument of Unknown Taiwanese Veterans)


After coming back to Taiwan 1992, Khou, Chiao-Eng, an elderly Taiwanese veteran who was once on the black list, devoted his efforts into reclaiming truth and justifying the honor of the elder Taiwanese soldiers and those who had died in alien lands as well as comfort their surviving families. He founded the Association of Taiwanese Veterans and Their Survivors in 1994, and later led a hunger strike protest in Kaohsiung with all these elderly Taiwanese veterans and their survivors from across the nation. Kaohsiung city government agreed to take a piece of land reserved for the Cijin Seaside Park to build the ‘Memorial Park of the Taiwanese Old Soldiers for World Peace’ which would also host the‘memorial monument for the “Unknown Taiwanese Veterans’, and the ‘Taiwanese Solider Memorial Hall’.

The very first ‘Monument of Unknown Taiwanese Veterans’, established right before the 60th anniversary of WWII, was dedicated to his fellow soldiers who had lost their lives for the country in alien lands. The heavy marble monument is a vehicle for the ghosts of these veterans who cannot return home; it bears the concerns their families have for them. The monument calls and leads the spirits of these veterans to come home across the Taiwan Strait.

The monument of ‘Unknown Taiwanese Soldiers’ is set next to the Windmill Park on the seashore of Cinjin. On its back, the engraved calligraphy reads ‘May their spirits rest peacefully in their hometowns’, written by former president Lee, Teng-Hui, and ‘May their souls be comforted in the motherland’ written by Khou, Chiao-Eng. On the base of the monument, the story of this tragic history is recorded. Each and every word recalls the tears and blood of these Taiwanese veterans, many of whom were sent to the fields of war during the Chinese Civil War and died there unknown under the ruthless gunfire. The monument is built to justify the historical position earned by these warriors.
