A Day of Remembrance
An estimated three million soldiers and civilians died during of the conflict, with the bulk of the terrible toll borne by Koreans themselves. Nevertheless, just a few years into what would become an historic recovery, a devastated nation remembered its fallen heroes. On June 6, 1956, Hyeonchung-il (현충일), or Memorial Day, became an official holiday. Since the month of June includes both Memorial Day and the anniversary of North Korea’s invasion, it’s when Koreans honor national defense. Students place thousands of flags and chrysanthemums on soldiers’ graves, and on Memorial Day itself, flags fly at half-mast and at 10-o’clock, a one-minute siren sounds across the nation.
