The opening ceremony for the exhibition of records of separated families is held

The Ministry of Unification held the opening ceremony for the exhibition of
records of separated families at Odusan Unification Observatory in Paju, Gyeonggi Province on November 29. The exhibition features a variety of records that tell the stories of separated families and express the pain of displaced persons.

The opening ceremony was attended by Vice Unification Minister Chun Hae-sung; Korean Red Cross Vice President Kim Yoon-hee; Ahn Chung-joon, chairman of the Committee for the Five Northern Korean Provinces; Kim Ji-hwan, chairman of the Northern Korean Central Association; and Lee Sang-chul, head of the Korean Assembly for Reunion of Ten Million Separated Families.

Pre-ceremony performances were presented for 100 donors of records and 100 separated family members living in Seoul who have yet to meet their loved ones in the North. The exhibition presents History of Separated Families, Special Exhibition of the 21st Reunion, and Exhibition of Records.

The government has extensively collected records of separated families over a period of two years from the separated family members who were reunited with their loved ones in the North via the first to 20th family reunions, central and local governments, and relevant organizations. The records include photos, letters, books, and items that tell the stories of separated and dispersed family members.
As of today, the government has collected 15,000 records from 500 sources.

The exhibition will run from November 29, 2018 to February 28, 2019. It is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends, national holidays, and public holidays. It is closed on Monday. Even if you cannot go to the exhibition, you will be able to see the records of separated families at the online museum for separated families.(https://reunion.unikorea.go.kr/museum)

The government will continue to work hard to fundamentally address the issues of separated families and build the public consensus on them.
