City: Seoul

The former prison in Seodaemun-gu which was used during the Colonial period to house anti-colonial activists, now serves the Seodaemun Prison History Hall which preserves and displays the suffering and pain of Koreans during the modern period. Years of history captured effectively in this walk around museum. The prison is a symbol of Japanese cruelty during their colonial rule of Korea from 1910 until 1945. Visitors can actually take a closer look at the original prison cell blocks where the independence fighters were held. There's this hanging chamber outside the prison in the courtyard, where many prisoners were executed and their bodies then dumped in a cellar nearby.
