Kenkoku Gakkō of 60 Years Ago

Photos from the early days of Hakutō Gakuin Kenkoku Gakkō (Educational Foundation Baekdu Hagwon Keonguk) in Osaka. The origins of this school date back to 1946, when the Baekdu Association established the Keonguk Industrial School and Keonguk Higher Girls’ School.

In 2005, 15 monochrome films containing valuable records of this school’s early days were found in the office of its alumni association. We can see the jubilant expressions of the students in the days following liberation. The films were included in the material donated by the family of the late Byong-so Park (朴炳昭, 10th cohort), who died in July 2005. The alumni association edited and screened the films during its 60th anniversary event in May 2006. A DVD containing the films and footage from the event was subsequently produced.
