Director Statement

Professor Yang, Meng-Che based on the exploration of the historical truth of the Taiwanese soldiers in the Japanese Army who were sent to Siberia for labor reform after the defeat of the Japanese Empire for many years.
Professor Yang, out of his curiosity about this obscure history and in the spirit of academic research, He went to Siberia many times at his own expense, and visited all the places where Taiwanese soldiers were sent to labor camps, such as Vladivostok, Khabarovsk, Irkutsk, Chita, and Nakhodka.
Through a referral, he found Mr. Lai, Xing-Yang, a Taiwanese soldier served in the Japanese army who was taken captive to Siberia for labor reform. He was also the only survivor among the 9 Taiwanese soldiers who were investigated at that time.
Professor Yang and Mr. Lai finally had the opportunity to tell the story that had been kept in his mind for many years. Mr. Lai’s special life experience can finally be heard by people all around the world.
