2-28 Commemoration

One of Taiwan's newer national holidays, February 28--also known as Peace Memorial Day--is an annual day of remembrance for the victims, who including innocent protesters and other local residents, of a massacre carried out by government troops on the same day in 1947. Consequently, this day is widely considered a dark reminder of past oppression by many Taiwanese, who may mark the occasion with ceremonies at 2-28 memorial parks established in cities around the island. However, the main purpose of this holiday is to heal divisions within Taiwan and promote peace.
