A very interesting exhibition — Fascinating and moving cartoons from the Shenyang POW Camp.
My grandfather fought the Japanese in Burma. Now I live in Japan with my Japanese wife and two sons.
My husband’s father served in China during WW2.
My name is Riley Gee and my great grandfather served as a flight mechanic in the Flying Tiger. This museum is very interesting and I enjoyed it.
It is always important to learn about all sides of one story. This place helped bring to light more of what I didn’t know. God bless those who had to suffer for our greater good.
This is a great exhibition, I didn’t know about those pow camps in China. My mother often mentioned to me about those air raid shelters. World War 2 Generation does not usually talk about the War since it was a painful experience, same with any other war. Only veterans talk about it among themselves. And take it to their graves.
If it wasn’t for this exhibition then this part of history will be lost forever. No people want peace more than soldiers and veterans. So the exhibit is not here to 6 certified war. It’s the opposite. To many sure, it will not happen again. Peace on Earth goodwill to meet women blessed are the peace waker. I salute you for putting up this exhibition.

“While wandering around S.F. waiting to see my daughter on Father’s Day, I decided to step into this exhibit. I am so glad I did! It was great to learn something new. We must never forget things like this.”
“Since elementary school, i had always been a huge WWII history buff, But I never really delved into the Chinese role in the Second World War. I had always dismissed their part as minor, however, after reading a book about the battle in Shanghai, I realized how deep and large the Chinese conflict was. The Second Japanese war is an extremely interesting part of history and I am glad to have researched it. I think it is really great that the WWII pacific Memorial Hall is helping to spread more awareness for China’s critical struggle.”
