Execution building at Seodaemun Prison History Museum

Execution building

The wooden building behind this wall was the execution building of patriots and activists at Seodaemun Prison. Many activists and patriots of Korea who struggled and suffered for the independence of Korea from Japan were sent here. They gave up their lives in the building for the love of their country.

The structure was built in 1923.

After being executed, the Japanese would dispose of the body using a secret tunnel known as the corpse removal exit.
