台北画刊107年2月第601期—[街角的一扇诗的窗] 这一天，让我们种一棵树附笔： 1947年出生的我，在某种意义上被视为228事件亡灵的再生。从岛屿南方，途经台中到北地，我的人生行程和生命经历里刻印着这样的再生符号。官方还未制定2月28日为纪念日之前，我就写了这首诗，并参与了1987年228的公义和平运动。 「以诗为花，纪念228；在受伤的岛国，种下希望的树。」是我对应政治的文化情怀，面对这个死灭之忆的日子，我们种树吧！在我们的土地，也在每...12382018-02-13

An inspirational Life and Museum Particularly in These TimesHighly recommended. The Nylon Cheng Liberty Foundation and Memorial Museum are housed in the former editorial offices of the Freedom Era Weekly magazine and contain many artifacts, photos and paraphernalia from Mr. Cheng’s life and courageous freedom of speech activities, along with videos of his life and times. Very moving and inspirational, particularly now when it seems so many forces are arrayed against democracy and freedom of speech. I will now honor 7 April every year as ‘Freedom of Expression Day’ to commemorate Nylon Cheng’s life. A special thanks to CEO Chih-Yao Tu and Mr. Cheng’s daughter for the courteous hospitality they showed me during my visit. (Note that the museum is located just across from the wall where many panels of inspirational quotes from Nylon Cheng, Nelson Mandela, ML King, Rosa Parks, Mahatma Gandhi, Malala Yousafzai and others are displayed.)

Poignant yet inspiringAs others have said this isn’t the easiest museum to find but it is absolutely a must see. It showcases the life and death of Nylon Cheng, in vivid detail. Once you find the address it’s easiest to walk right up the stairs. It looks like a normal block of flats, don’t stand outside pressing the buzzer for ten minutes like I did, just walk right up! Upon entry there is a video documentary available in English before you enter the main area. My tour guide Eunice, was well informed and spoke passionately about the topic. There are parts of the museum which I was really surprised to see preserved from decades ago, without wanting to say more and ruin the mystique of this museum.
Unusual museum, very well presentedA small museum, rather hard to find (though I have no smart phone and I did make the mistake of going to the wrong MRT station - for the record you need Zhongshan Junior High School not Zhongshan Elementary School!) Very informative video relates the life and death of Nylon Cheng in 20 minutes, then you get to see the very office where he committed his final act of protest. It is a very moving experience. The exhibition is in Chinese but a very helpful member of the staff talked me through it over about half an hour or so. I was prompted to go here after seeing an excellent bust if Nylon Cheng at the 228 Museum. After inquiring of volunteer there who the gentleman was she told me a little of his story and then gave me details of this museum. Thank you Madam! Taiwanese people are so friendly. Great museum, it's free though I gave a small donation. See the pictures btw - you have to ring the buzzer - it's just one floor in what appears to be a residential block of flats. 10/10.
Most amazing museum you'll never find in a guidebookI heard about this museum from a former English language volunteer. This was the highlight of my trip to Taipei, it's extremely moving and definitely belongs in a top 5 list for the historically minded traveler. Obviously it is a little too shocking to be found in a guidebook, though. The museum is located in the actual apartment that Nylon Cheng burnt down when he self-immolated. It contains many real burnt letters, recovered from the apartment, of his correspondence with Amnesty International and other international organizations. There is not a lot of English guidance, but right now there is a movie exhibit in the entrance room and they can play an English movie for you if you ask. It's a small place but emotionally powerful and free to visit.
A beautiful man worth recognition for freedom fighters everywhere.We were lucky enough to hear about this site from a volunteer at the 228 Memorial Peace Museum. She said, "if you are interested to learn more, follow up here." Of course I was. :D It took awhile to find as this history is still new in Taiwan after having been oppressed for over 40 years. The memorial is in the actual building of Nylons magazine and where he immolated himself. Words cannot describe. Other than 228, I left with tears in my eyes. This is not for the fairweather traveler, rather, for those of us who want to immerse ourselves in the human struggle and for those who support the ones who have fought so hard for the things many of us now take for granted. Long live Nylon and his message!
