Remembrance day Remembrance day Presentation Transcript

  • Remembrance
    And What It Means To Me
  • Why do we celebrate
    Remembrance Day?
  • Why do we celebrate
    Remembrance Day?
    We celebrate Remembrance Day to
    honour the soldiers that died in wars.
    But it’s means more than that to me!
  • The Forgotten War
    The Korean War
    Many Canadian soldiers fought and died in World War II. This was a big war with many countries fighting against each other. Before this big war, Korea was controlled by Japan. Japan was one of the countries that lost in World War II, so Korea was finally free.
  • The Forgotten War
    The Korean War
    Korea was divided in two parts, the North and the South. The winners of World War II were supposed to help Korea because they weren’t free in a long time. Russia helped the North, and the United States helped the South.
    Everything was good for a few years so the Russians and the Americans left North and South Korea.
  • The Forgotten War
    The Korean War
    In June of 1950, the North Korean army came into South Korea and started a long three year war.
    There were many countries that came to help South Korea.
    This is a picture of the some
    of the flags of the countries that
    came to help South Korea when the
    war started. My momma took this
    picture when we went to the
    cemetery where the soldiers that
    died in the Korean War are buried.
  • The Forgotten War
    The Korean War
    Canada was one of those countries that helped South Korea fight the North. 1558 Canadian soldiers were hurt and 516 of them died fighting in the Korean War. The next pictures are from the cemetery where some of these Canadian soldiers and other countries soldiers that died are buried. This is where I was born.
  • The UN Cemetery
    Soldiers that died in the Korean War are buried here in my hometown, Pusan, South Korea.
  • UN Cemetery
    Over 2300 soldiers are buried here.
  • Canadian Memorial Statue
    This statue is to remember the Canadian soldiers that died in the Korean War. It was made by a Canadian army man and a Korean artist.
  • UN Cemetery
    This is where the Canadian soldiers are buried in the cemetery.
  • Wall of Remembrance
    All the names of the soldiers that died from all the countries are written on this wall. There are almost 41,000 names.
  • Wall of Remembrance
    These are the names of the Canadian soldiers.
  • The Forgotten War
    The Korean War
    After fighting hard for three years, the North and South decided to stop fighting.
    This war is not really over, though. No one was a winner.
    If Canada didn’t help, maybe North Korea would have won.
    If this had happened, South Korea would not be free, and I would not be born.
    This is why Remembrance Day is important to me.
