During the question-and-answer segment of the seminar on February 4, Dr. Simon Shen was the first to ask questions, followed by the audience’s successive speeches. They not only shared the deeds of the Wang Jingwei regime but also discussed Wang’s thoughts and the whereabouts of primary sources with Professor Eugene Chiu and Professor Hsu Yuming. The thirst for the truth about the history of the Republic of China was fully reflected. The professors’ careful and deep responses also benefited the attendees greatly. The entire series of five Q&A sessions is now fully available online, don’t miss out!
In the latest episode, a member of the audience asks about the Wang Jingwei “diary” and the works of Wang’s associates, and where these various works are kept. Professor Hsu informs us that the Wang Jingwei “diary” is really an appointment book, now kept at the Shanghai Library. Professor Chiu goes on to discuss the gaps in our understanding because of missing archival material; the fact that Chen Bijun’s “confession” is excluded from the published testimonies of other defendants in the notorious trials of Wang Jingwei regime is a stark example.
The wonderful content of all eleven episodes is now available for review on our YouTube channel. The videos of the February 5th seminar by Tao Jie and the February 14th seminar of Nanshe Poetry will also be coming soon.
