  • Hi guys! Welcome back on my channel.

  • My name is Charlotte. Today, in this episode ofTaiwan Global News

  • I am going to talk about an article that was published on the 7th of June in the Taipei Times.

  • The title of the article is: “Human rights museum has been granted German award”.

  • This article mentions a human rights museum. I have never been there, but I think it is located in New Taipei City.

  • The museum, established on October 19, 2011, features the hidden history of abuses, while promoting human rights and democracy.”

  • I have no idea if you have ever been there, but this is the museum we are going to talk about today.

  • Human Rights Museum granted German award - Taipei Times

  • Once again, the article is long. I will link it down in the description so you can read the whole article if you want.

  • I will be reading some parts to you that I personally found interesting.

  • The National Human Rights Museum won a Special Award for advancing education on human rights and democracy

  • as part of this year's Karl Wilhelm Fricke Award, the museum announced on Thursday.

  • The award - named for a German political journalist who dedicated his life to resisting state repression

  • serves to recognize people or organizations that have made a significant contribution to transitional justice.

  • Representative to Germany Shieh Jhy-wey (謝志偉) on Wednesday received the award,

  • presented by foundation managing director Anna Kaminsky, on behalf of the museum at his office in Berlin, the museum said in a statement.

  • Kaminsky called Taiwan a strong and important partner for Germany in transitional justice

  • and said that the two nations have much to learn from each other,

  • even though the dictatorships they experienced were quite different, the museum said.

  • Shieh added that the award sends a strong signal to the world, as it was presented on the eve of the 31st anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre, the museum said.”

  • This was a part of the article.

  • I think it is interesting and beautiful that there are organizations in place that recognise places that educate and improve human rights all over the world.

  • I think it is important that the efforts of this Taiwanese museum are recognized, as they are doing such a good job.

  • After reading this article, I am so curious to see that museum.

  • I don't know about youHave you ever been there before? Have you heard about it?

  • I personally hadn't heard about it yet, but it must be a famous place in Taiwan, right?
