Railroad Guerrilla Theme Park

(Cont’ from Zaozhuang page)

Many civilians suffered heavy casualties in Shandong during the war against Japan. The Japanese had burned the historical water town of Tai’erzhuang (“Zhuang” means village in Chinese) to ashes. Local Chinese guerrillas, who fought against Japanese invaders, had repeatedly sabotaged Japan railway tracks and taken over the ammunition depot. The Zaozhuang story of fighting on the railroad was written into a novel. Years later, a film bearing the same name became China’s #1 hit. A restored town with a complete World War II scene was recreated to remind visitors what Shandong had suffered in the 1940s. You can see recreation of Shandong village in the 40s, Japan castles, and reenactment of Japanese army patrolling the streets and how tools used by Japanese to torture the local Chinese people.   The re-enactments of Japan’s surrender at the end of the war is performed few times daily at the theme park during the travel season. Shandong had suffered unproportioned casualties from the Japanese invasion due to its proximity with Japan and its strategic location within China.
