Nashua Public Library, Nashua, NH
The History You Never Heard’ is a Walden Korea long-term project informing the American public of the truth of the 1948 Jeju 4.3 Uprising and Massacre in South Korea and the horrors of state violence. The project consists of seminars and academic programs held across the United States as well as publications, raising awareness on state crimes and the importance of truth, justice, and reconciliation.
The massacre of more than 30,000 civilians on Jeju Island started in April 1948, while South Korea was governed by the United States Army Military Government in Korea (USAMGIK). The U.S. had operational control of South Korea’s armed forces at this time. Historical records show U.S. intervention in quelling the uprising. But few Americans know of this dark history. We call on the United States to release more classified documents and cooperate on further fact-finding efforts. The truth needs to be told. Nation states at times make egregious mistakes, and the United States is no exception. The mistakes made by the U.S. in Korea over 70 years ago still cast a long shadow on the politics of the Korean peninsula today.
