The Special Exhibition on the 90th Demise Anniversary of Dr. Sun Yat-sen will be held between March 7 and 30 at the National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall.
Dr. Sun Yat-sen (國父 孫中山) changed the modern history of China and established the first democratic republic in Asia. In honor of the 90th anniversary of his death in March 12, 1925, the National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall has organized a memorial exhibition in three sections — "Dr. Sun Yat-sen's life story,” "Dr. Sun Yat-sen's trip to northern China,” and "Dr. Sun Yat-sen and Madame Soong Ching-ling (Rosamonde Soong).”
Based on archival documents, the first section will present Dr. Sun's life story through 11 pivotal periods: family background and schooling; the establishment of the Revive China Society (興中會); the establishment of the Chinese United League (中國同盟會); continuation of the revolutionary uprisings; overthrowing dictatorship through the Wuchang Revolution (武昌起義); the establishment of the Republic of China; the second revolution denouncing Yuan Shih-kai (袁世凱); reforming the Kuomintang to launch the Northern Expedition; resurgence of the revolution; journey to northern China and death by illness; and the founding father's relationship with Taiwan.
The second section will expand on Dr. Sun's fated trip to northern China in the 1910s, his continuous efforts and strive for the unification of China, and his vision for China's future before his untimely demise in 1925.
The last section will focus on Madame Soong and her family's role in assisting Dr. Sun, including her father Soong Yao-ru's (宋耀如) assistance in launching the decade-long anti-Manchu revolution.
The memorial exhibition reflects not only the difficult life Dr. Sun led to champion a 40-year revolution, but also serves to highlight his unyielding spirit of perseverance.
