Exhibition: The Burma Road
The Burma Road (Chinese: 滇缅公路) was a road linking Burma with the southwest of China. Its terminals were Kunming, Yunnan, and Lashio, Burma. It was built while Burma was a British colony in order to convey supplies to China during the Second Sino-Japanese War (中国抗日战争). Preventing the flow of supplies on the road helped motivate the occupation of Burma by the Empire of Japan in 1942. Use of the road was restored to the Allies in 1945 after the completion of the Ledo Road. Some parts of the old road are still visible today.
"In addition to hundreds of historically precious photographs , the exhibition also featured more than 50 sets of rare and precious cultural relics , including the mechanics ID, driver's license, matching logo, medals, personal letters and articles."
