70 Years later: August 17, 2015


August 9, 2015 :
The Shadyside Hospital repair work started this March and will be finished this Thursday. The hospital is the main building existed of Ledaoyuan, as well as Weihsien Concentration Camp site under the protection of Shandong Provincial People's Government for its historical value. Now it has turned to be, also, a big exhibition house of Ledaoyuan and Weihsien Camp and will be open to public.
We have collected SOME items of Weihsien Camp life for exhibit from some former internees and some local people, except photos and paintings, and still many beautiful exhibition boxes there are empty. Any donations of items of Weihsien Camp life are highly appreciated.

Weihsieners are warmly welcome to the 70th anniversary reunion in Weifang in this August.

Among the 87 registered participants to the reunion there are 15 former internees, so far recorded.
All participants to the reunion will stay in Dongfang Hotel from August 16 to 18th.
