A teach-in on the 50th anniversary of the War in Korea, entitled “The Forgotten War,” will be held Sunday from 4 to 9 p.m. at the Trinity United Methodist Church at 2362 Bancroft Way.
It will reexamine the Korean War and seek ways of bringing peace and reunification to Korea. Korean survivors of the war – the Rev. Han Sang Eun and the Rev. Yoon Kil Sang – and U.S. veterans of the war – Paul Myers and Ralph Webb – will share memories of the war and discuss the impact the war had on their lives.
Professor Kang Jeong-Koo of Dangkuk University in Seoul will address the origins of the Korean War, and Bay Area peace activist and Vietnam veteran Brian Wilson will also be on hand to report on his recent meetings in South Korea with village level committees to investigate Korean War atrocities.
There will be a multimedia presentation with testimonies by survivors and children of survivors, a performance by the Korean Youth Cultural Center, poetry by Kim Myung Mi and a screening if the British Thames Television documentary, “Korea the Unknown War.” A candlelight vigil will be held at 9 p.m. at Sproul Plaza on the UC campus to commemorate the war.
The teach-in is sponsored by the Teach-In Committee To End The War In Korea.
