Historical referencesThis prisoner of war camp was built in November, 1950, and was used to keep the increasing numbers of P.O.W.s isolated from the rest of the country. About 170,000 P.O.W.s, whether communists or anti-communists, were accommodated in this camp during the war. The prisoners consisted of 150,000 North Koreans and 20,000 Chinese. The camp is an impressive array of historical war facts, dioramas, war vehicles and weapons, actual tents and a kitchen and latrine area.
