Transcript of "Remembrance day"

  1. 1. Remembrance Day And What It Means To Me by Peanut
  2. 2. Why do we celebrate Remembrance Day?
  3. 3. 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!
  4. 4. 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.
  5. 5. 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.
  6. 6. 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.
  7. 7. 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.
  8. 8. The UN Cemetery Soldiers that died in the Korean War are buried here in my hometown, Pusan, South Korea.
  9. 9. UN Cemetery Over 2300 soldiers are buried here.
  10. 10. 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.
  11. 11. UN Cemetery This is where the Canadian soldiers are buried in the cemetery.
  12. 12. 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.
  13. 13. Wall of Remembrance These are the names of the Canadian soldiers.
  14. 14. 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.
