Today, Europe and the West think they have refuge crisis. I'm not saying it's not, but Taiwan (6 milllion) took 1~2 million refugees in 1949.
Not a single word of appreciation from China, UN and US.
Many descendants of refugees accepted the historical fact, almost all with own family tales of the misery endured in this tragic exodus. But still many refuse to come to terms with it and instead paint the exodus as some liberation army hailed from heaven. I also see some irresponsibly releasing the tentrum of a 2nd gen identity crisis on irrelevant straw man such as Holo, or Lee Teng hui, or the Japanese.
news clip below was from 1949 KMT party newspaper. People at that time were fully aware of their own predicament.
