I had an opportunity this weekend to visit a couple of museums: the 9:18 museum and the provincial museum.
I found the 9.18 museum quite a lesson in history for me. I am not well versed in the history of World War II. Living in North America, I suppose I learned the North American version - that the war started in Europe and by 1941, when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbour, the Americans were drawn into the war. But after visiting the 9.18 museum, I have another perspective on that historical period.
Walking through the museum is emotionally difficult because it shows how the Japanese invaded Northern China including Shenyang in 1931. It was a bloody and ruthless invasion and some of the graphics and objects were hard to look at.
