Japanese Past Crime of Destruction and Plunder
of Korean Cultural Assets (29)

 
Japanese imperialists plundered and destroyed many monuments too. In the early period of their occupation of Korea they made a thorough “survey” of the monuments and compiled them into a book titled “Comprehensive Bibliography of Stone Monuments in Korea” to use it in the distortion of the Korean history and the colonial rule.
The proof of it was the plunder of the Monument to the Great Victory in the Northern Area.
The monument was set up in commemoration of the victory of the volunteer unit in the Hamgyong Province and the defeat of the Japanese invaders who made an inroad into our country during the Imjin Patriotic War.
During the Russia-Japan war, the Japanese invasion army man Ikeda found this monument in 1905 in the Hamgyong Province. Considering that if this monument evidencing their past defeat left intact would increase the anti-Japanese sentiments among the Korean people and turn disadvantageous in their colonization of Korea, he dug it out in secret to ship to Tokyo, Japan in 1906.
It was abandoned in a corner of the Yaskuni Shrine, a symbol of the Japanese militarism, for a long time and at last returned to its original place after a century.
Innumerous are the stone art works looted and destroyed by the Japanese imperialists in the past and the number disclosed so far is the tip of the iceberg.
