[Museum Talks] A cup of coffee, a piece of relics – the 29th episode
The Korean War that Yonsei went through
The Korean War, 70 years ago, was the most disastrous and shameful time in our history. Yonsei was also wounded and frustrated in the middle of the war.
The scars of the war remain throughout the Sinchon Campus, which was the site of a fierce battle.
The bullet marks on the Underwood statue symbolize the indomitable struggle of the ‘Yonsei spirit’,
and the scratches of the Joseon royal Sugyengwon, which promoted independence and modernization, awakens ‘Yonsei mission’.
Underwood’s house preserves even the shells that made it hideous.
However, in 『Yeonhee University President’s log』 written during the war, confusion, fear and poverty were not only recorded.
The courage to protect the ivory tower of liberty and truth from Seoul to Daegu and Busan, and the mission with hope of university gathered in the tent class in the refuge was also recorded.
To maintain our peace and prosperity and lead them together, let’s closely follow the traces of the ordeal left by history.
