This week I read a section about a Korean War Captive in Japan. I read the section about the captive sending a memorial from captivity. I thought this really expanded my view as a historian. So often we are told to read and analyze textbooks and we are given little opportunity to view personal sources from people. I think personal sources are important because it helps historians understand the thoughts of actual people living through difficult times. I hope to find more of these sources through the rest of the semester to increase my knowledge of subjects, especially my final project regarding the colonial time period in Korea.
