Dokdo bombing incident and Dokdo Displaced Fishermen Memorial Monument
- Inside Zone #6 of the An Yong-bok Memorial Hall is the Dokdo Displaced Fishermen Memorial Monument, which was first discovered in 2015. This Monument was erected in 1950 by Gyeongsangbuk-do Governor Jo Jae-cheon (2nd Governor of Gyeongsangbuk-do) to commemorate fishermen from the east coast of Korea who were sacrificed in a surprise bombing attack on Dokdo by the US Air Force in 1948. The Monument was lost due to unknown causes in the late 1950s. Fortunately, it was found and salvaged from the waters near the current Dokdo Wharf in 2015.
- The Dokdo Displaced Fishermen Memorial Monument, which commemorates the fishermen who died in the bombing, proves that Dokdo was home to fishermen on the east coast of Korea even during the chaotic times immediately after liberation.
