[Reporter Lin Yizhang/Report from Chiayi] Chiayi County Shuishang Elementary School has a history of 120 years. The "School Diary Book" of the 14th grade group was donated to the school for collection and display for free the day before yesterday.

The diary book was the teaching content of Taiwanese schools during the Japanese occupation. It recorded the "air raid siren" issued by the U.S. air raid in 1945. By March, Tainan University was air raided, and at the end it was written "Closed school (temporarily closed school)". A first-hand account of the changing times.
