Site Overview

11 villagers of Hado-ri and Jongdal-ri were hiding in Darangshi Cave and were found in 1948. The army found this cave and urged villagers to come out. Since they did not come out of the cave, the army set fire at the entrance of the cave and blew smoke inside. People died from suffocation. In 1992, all 11 dead bodies were found undisturbed and it triggered a truth-finding campaign for the April 3rd Uprising and Massacre.
