Trip Moments

During the Qing Dynasty, the Russians built a prison in Dalian. Now it has become a free tourist attraction

Dalian Lushun. It has an important strategic position. It has become a springboard for the powers to invade China more than a hundred years ago. The centuries-old ancient architecture also became the evidence of the invasion of China by the powers.
The former site of the Japanese-Russian prison in Lushun has now become a free and open tourist attraction. The prison was built in 1902 at the end of the Qing Dynasty. It was built by the Russians and later expanded by the Japanese in 1907 to form today's scale.
In the Japanese-Russian prison, the blue bricks were built by the Russians, with a total of 85 cells, and the red bricks were later expanded by the Japanese, with a total of 253 cells. The cell area is small and several people are crowded into a cell. The conditions are very difficult.
There are not only Chinese in this prison, but also some Japanese and Koreans. The most well-known "prisoner" held here is the Korean emperor. An Zhonggen assassinated Ito Bowen at Harbin Railway Station in 1909, and was then detained here. He was righteous in prison the following year. The
Japanese-Russian prison has a history of more than 100 years. It is impossible to count how many patriots are being held in custody. Because the Japanese evacuated, all the documents were burned in order to cover up their crimes.
This is a unique prison in the world. It is a prison built continuously and continuously by two imperialist countries in a third country. It has become a human hell for imprisoning, persecuting and slaughtering the Chinese people and international progressives.
Chinese prisoners are subjected to the most severe persecution here. Prison regulations, Japanese prisoners can eat white rice in prison, Korean prisoners can eat millet, and Chinese prisoners can only eat moldy sorghum rice in prison. In the prison, the scene of the Japanese invaders killing the prisoners was reproduced. There was also a gallows room, and on the hill next to the prison, there were still countless skeletons of executed prisoners.

Lushun: the first fortress in the Far East
at the end of the 19th century, Li Hongzhang was built as the first fortress in the Far East. Here is the first water pipeline in China. The first international telephone line has the first electric light in the northeast. At this time, Dalian is just a fishing village called Qingniu.

But a fiasco in 1894, it made this place a dead city. The streets were filled with mountains and blood flowing into the river. More than 20,000 innocent people in the city were killed by the invaders.

After four years, in 1898, the uncleaned city was taken over by Russia, and the Russians occupied it as the estuary of the Far East, where European-style squares and streets were built for the beautiful residence of the military aristocrats. The villa's official residence, as well as the 203 Highland Fortress and the East Jiguanshan Fortress, are known as the Eastern Russian nobles at the time.

1904, Japan, which has been holding a decade of glory, has renewed a fierce war in order to compete for the city. In the Russo-Japanese War, the commander of the Russian Pacific Fleet, Makarov, died here, the Japanese military god. The last son of Naimu was killed here, and 100,000 Japanese and Russian soldiers died here. The Russian Pacific Fleet was also buried here, and Japan paid a huge price to occupy it.

In 1945, the city was written into the Yalta Agreement as a condition for the Soviet Union to send troops to the northeast to sweep the Japanese Kwantung Army. It was once again controlled by the Soviet Union and returned to the motherland only in 1955. However, it still exists as a military. There was no passport of the National Security Bureau before 1996. No foreigners were allowed to enter here until 2009, when it was all open to the public.

Here is, Lushunkou.

I always thought that Lushun was a level in Dalian. Today's small town is just a district under the jurisdiction of Dalian. The old-fashioned bungalows are shaded by flowers and trees. The centuries-old military port dock is still silently watching the ebb and flow, and the bombardment of the fortress fortress is quietly reflecting the setting sun. The sacred name of a piece of Chinese modern history summarizes all the vicissitudes of life, and the national humiliation seems to be synonymous with Lushun. But no one has ever thought about why such a small town has been repeatedly pushed to the cusp of history. After the blood and the smoke, what is the true face of history?

In fact, the true history of Lushun should be traced back from the modern era: the Navy Camp in the Ming and Qing Dynasties, the Jinjing in the Tang Dynasty, the Shepherd City in the Han Dynasty, and the Neolithic Age under the Tieshan. By arranging the nodes of all the time and space, you will find a hidden dark line hidden behind history.
