한국 전쟁 역사에 대한 생존자들의 증언의 중요성

김동춘 (성공회대학교 사회학과)

While the Korean War has been regarded as having been one of the most destructive wars of the 20th century in terms of civilian casualties, there is no reliable data or figures on the number of casualties, especially the mass killings committed by U.S. and South Korean authorities.

The Unforgotten War

Elaine Kim (University of California, Berkeley)

Frequently characterized as “the forgotten war” in the United States, the 1950-53 war in Korea took an estimated four million lives and resulted in uncountable injuries, separated ten million families behind a historically unprecedented U.S.-imposed partition, and literally flattened northern and central Korea with air strikes that destroyed not only buildings and houses but also dams, irrigation, roads, bridges, and farms, exceeding the total bombings in Europe during World War II.

The Korean War, Anticommunism, and the Korean American Community

Namhee Lee (UCLA)

The Korean War (1950–1953) remains possibly the most traumatic collective experience for most Koreans, both on the peninsula and in the diaspora since 1945.  The war claimed close to three million civilian lives and destroyed half of Korea’s industries and a third of all its homes.  Moreover, the atrocities committed by both sides left Koreans with deep scars, as many who were accused of supporting the other side were imprisoned or summarily executed during the war.

침묵은 이제 그만: 한국계 미국인들은 ‘잊혀진 전쟁’을 기억한다

램지 림 (보스톤 컬리지 심리학과)

Silence is a common signature of profoundly traumatic events not the least of which are wars. For survivors of armed conflict, it attests to unspeakable violence and unresolved wounds.  For state actors, it shields the geopolitics of war from public scrutiny. The Korean War is a testament to both conditions—a horrific civil conflict bearing untold civilian and military casualties and also an interventionist war in which U.S. stakes in the emerging Cold War dictated the allied response.  It is no wonder the Korean War is best known as the Forgotten War.

숫자를 너머: 한국 전쟁의 잔혹성

유지연 (노스웨스턴대학교 아시안아메리칸학)

The cost of the Korean War is commonly tallied in numbers: soldiers killed and wounded, civilians killed and wounded, villages destroyed, refugees evacuated, orphans created, families divided, napalm dropped, bombs exploded.  Those numbers are worth repeating, for the sheer physical devastation of three years of war on a peninsula about the size of Idaho (roughly 85,000 square miles) is staggering.
