After the Taiwan P.O.W. Memorial Society showcased the documentary A War Story in 1997, many interested individuals were led by former POW Jack Edwards to visit the camp in Jinguashi. Soon the Memorial Society actively pushed for the development of a memorial monument at Tongshanli Community Park, the current site of the old Jinguashi camp so many Allied troops were imprisoned in. On November 23rd, 1997, a memorial ceremony was held at the site in honor of the lives lost during the war.
November 14th marks the date when the first group of POWs from Great Britain entered the POW Camp at Jinguashi, and the Taiwan P.O.W. Memorial Society decided to honor these soldiers by holding memorial ceremonies in Jinguashi every November. All that remains at the memorial site now are the gate columns of the original camp and a tiny piece of what used to be its outer wall.
