Purple flowers, Republic of Korea 2

Seotal Oreum Massacre Site 23 March 2013 (2) (1024x683)

Purple flowers, unplanted, mark
the site of the
Seotal Oreum Massacre:

In 1950, after the Korean war broke out,
the Korean government issued orders
of “preventative detention”
of suspected communists and communist sympathizers.
Of the 344 people the Moseulpo Police detained,
210 were illegally massacred in two mass killings at the base of Seotal Oreum.

The people
and the flowers
remember.

23 March 2013
Seotal Oreum, Jeju Island, Republic of Korea
