To mark the 70th anniversary of the Korean War armistice, the Korean government is launching several campaigns to raise global awareness of veterans’ stories and the country’s growth since. One area of focus is Korea’s demilitarized zone (DMZ), a strip of land running across the Korean peninsula. Though the DMZ is often referred to as a symbol of the Korean War and its division, it stands for much more than that.
By collaborating with nine prominent Korean institutions for content curation— as well as support from Google Arts & Culture— we are proudly launching a special DMZ project for the rest of the world to explore its history, incredible nature and art.
Learn about the history of the DMZ.
Explore dozens of stories about key events during the Korean War, student volunteer forces, the hardships of soldiers from the United Nations and other countries, or the origins of a local dish created during the war. These complex stories reveal just how much history exists in this area. To top it off, you can take a virtual tour to explore the historical sites of the Korean War in both the DMZ border area and the provisional capital of Busan.
