This blog is all about remembrance. We remember those who came before us, we remember their life, their love and happiness, but also their pain and suffering. The purpose of this blog is not to provide ground breaking new research on the topics covered. Instead, it endeavours to spread awareness in the English speaking world about the history of colonialism in Asia, mainly China. I feel that this subject is neglected in high school history books. Beyond the academic sphere, it is difficult to find people who are even aware of the various events that shaped the way Asia is.
As an enthusiast of history, I feel I am in the position to write these articles and to spread this relatively obscure information. I think it is important for us to remember.
The blog will not be updated very frequently, but one can expect about a post a month.
