Since 1972, Seodaemun Prison History Center has been a national independence monument, dedicated to those who suffered in the name of Korea under the Japanese occupation (1910-45). It was built during the time of Japan's oppression of Korea, and even today the walls are haunted by the many atrocities committed at this site. The cells, confinement and torture rooms are restored to how they were before 1945. There is also a hall with some historical background and descriptions.
