關於本館
2019年是「六四」屠殺30周年,支聯會幾經努力,排除萬難,終於重置「六四紀念館」,再次成為中國土地上,唯一能公開說出「六四」真相的場所,讓公眾參觀。

「六四紀念館」於4月26日(《人民日報》發表題為《必須旗幟鮮明地反對動亂》社論30周年)重新開館,主題為「記憶。公義。希望」,紀念在八九民運中犧牲的烈士和他們的奉獻精神。

「六四紀念館」新館入口有「六四」計時器,見證「八九六四」距今多少年、月、日、時、分、秒,雖然不想回憶,但人民不會忘記。

年輕策展人用64張黑白相片重現89年北京學生反貪腐、反官倒、爭民主的波瀾壯闊運動過程,亦透過「六四」死難者王楠和吳向東的遺物,以及倖存者張健和官方頒發給執行鎮壓任務解放軍的紀念軍錶和筆等見證物,讓當年血腥鎮壓的情景一幕幕重現眼前,屠夫政權的謊言不攻自破。

除了相片及展覽,「六四紀念館」還透過播放錄像和民運歌曲等多媒體,展示八九民運精神,呈現「六四」真相。這次新增了VR﹙Virtual Reality虛擬實境﹚,讓參觀者在民運歌聲中恍如置身「六四」燭光集會現場。

與世界各地其他同類型紀念館一樣,保留真相、守護記憶、拒絕遺忘、反思歷史教訓、明辨是非、堅持公義,才能令同樣的悲劇和罪行不再出現;也期望能透過認清真相,思考無數人付出血汗所走過的路,讓我們,特別是年青一代,重新記取光明和希望。

中共企圖抹去人民對這段歷史真相的記憶,禁止任何討論。在香港,我們仍有表達自由的空間,更有責任保存歷史,傳承真相,呼喚良知,平反「六四」,推動對中國民主前景的反思。並以此說明支聯會要求平反「六四」丶追究屠殺責任、結束一黨專政丶建設民主中國的決心。

「六四紀念館」除了面對或明或暗的政治打壓,經費也是重要考慮,需要各界人士捐款支持,眾志成城,令「六四紀念館」能持久運作。

「六四紀念館」建館歷程:

1.「六四紀念館」於2012年和2013年分別在深水埗和香港城市大學設立臨時紀念館,反應熱烈,遂於2014年在尖沙咀富好中心購買單位,設立永久「六四紀念館」,但不斷遭受大廈業主立案法團的訴訟纏擾,以及管理處經常滋擾參觀者,加上紀念館受面積所限,未能作更大規模的展覽宣傳,也沒有足夠地方舉辦講座等活動,嚴重限制紀念館的發展和教育功能。2016年,經支聯會常委會討論及在會員大會上決議通過出售物業,另覓更大面積地方重建紀念館。

2.2017年及2018年,支聯會一方面在維園年宵攤位及友好團體提供的場地舉行「六四紀念館」專題展,一方面籌款擴館及尋找新館址。幾經努力,2019年初購得位於旺角一單位,重置「六四紀念館」。

3. 與世界各地其他同類型紀念館一樣,保留真相、守護記憶、以史為鑑、明辨是非、堅持公義,才能令同樣的悲劇和罪行不再出現。

4.「六四紀念館」希望達至「毋忘六四,呼喚良知」和「薪火相傳」,向公眾講解八九民運歷史,認識八九民運的前因後果;期盼政府和市民均能以史為鑑,共同探討建立一個公平正義社會的意義。

「六四紀念館」內容:

展覽:以珍貴的實物、文獻、錄像和圖片等,介紹八九民運及「六四」屠殺,並展示民間見證、海內外和港澳的聲援與堅持等等。

「六四」屠殺實物展區:展出「六四」死難者和倖存者的證物,包括由兩位「天安門母親」張先玲和徐珏捐出於「六四」遇難的兒子王楠和吳向東的遺物等,讓血的「鐵證」呈現歷史真相。

VR﹙Virtual Reality虛擬實境﹚:在民運歌聲中,讓參觀者恍如置身「六四」燭光集會現場。

拍照區:以計時器數算1989年「六四」距離我們多久日子。即使時間流逝,也洗刷不掉人民追求公義和民主自由的決心。每次拍照的一分一秒可能和下一刻已不同,亦提醒我們每分每秒的重要性,現在是傳承史實給下一代的重要時刻。

圖書閣:陳列與八九民運和「六四」屠殺相關的書籍、刊物等。另外,多個國家包括英國、美國、加拿大的解密檔案,讓參觀者可透過各國的解密文件了解「六四」真相。

影視播放區:播放不同的「六四」及「天安門母親」紀錄片。

禮品閣:備有民運書籍及紀念品供選購。

Memory. Justice. Hope.
June 4th Museum reopens, against all odds


This year marks the 30th anniversary of the June 4 massacre. Against all odds, Hong Kong Alliance is now reopening the June 4th Museum ,the only place in China where the truth about June 4 can be told.

The June 4th Museum reopens on April 26 (the 30th anniversary of the infamous People’s Daily editorial irrevocably branding the 1989 pro-democracy demonstrations ‘turmoil’) with the theme ‘Memory. Justice. Hope’ to commemorate the sacrifice of martyrs and their dedication in the 1989 democracy movement.

The June 4 timer at the entrance of the new museum shows the number of years, months, days, hours, minutes and seconds since June 4, 1989.

The young curators have used 64 black-and-white photos to depict the 1989 Beijing student demonstrations for democracy and against corruption and official profiteering. Through the display of the possessions of Wang Nan and Wu Xiangdong, who died on June 4, and the evidence by survivor Zhang Jian, together with the commemorative military watch and pens issued to the People’s Liberation Army whom carried out the suppression, the scene of the crackdown is relived and the lies of the butcher regime exposed.

In addition to photos and exhibitions, multimedia such as videos and democracy songs present the spirit of the 1989 democracy movement and the truth of June 4. Through Virtual Reality, visitors can experience Hong Kong’s annual June 4 candlelight vigil.

In keeping with the purpose of similar memorials around the world, only by telling the truth, protecting memory, learning from history, distinguishing between right and wrong, and upholding justice can such a criminal tragedy be prevented from happening again. We also hope that by recognizing the truth and remembering countless people’s contribution and sacrifice in the movement, we, especially the younger generation, can regain light and hope.

In China, the Communist Party attempts to erase people’s memory of this historical event and bans any discussion. In Hong Kong, we still have room for freedom of expression. Thus, we bear a greater responsibility to preserve history, inherit the truth, call for conscience, vindicate June 4, and promote reflection on the prospects for democracy in China. Hong Kong Alliance is determined in its call for vindication of June 4, accountability for the massacre, the end of one-party dictatorship, and a democratic China.

Under constant political pressure, funding for the June 4th Museum is vital. We ask for the support of people from all walks of life to help sustain museum operations.

History of the June 4th Museum:

1. Temporary June 4th Museums were set up in Sham Shui Po and City University of Hong Kong in 2012 and 2013 respectively. In 2014, a space at Foo Hoo Centre, Tsim Sha Tsui was purchased, and the permanent June 4th Museum opened. However, the building owners’ corporation brought litigation against the Museum and the management office often harassed Museum visitors. The Museum also had limited space for larger exhibitions and other activities such as lectures, which seriously restricted the development and educational initiatives of the Museum. In 2016, the Standing Committee of Hong Kong Alliance discussed and approved selling the property and looking for a bigger space to reopen the Museum.

2. In 2017 and 2018, Hong Kong Alliance organised special exhibitions of the June 4th Museum at the Victoria Park Lunar New Year Fair and venues provided by like-minded groups. It also fundraised for museum expansion and searched for a new site. Finally a space was purchased in Mong Kok in early 2019 to reopen the June 4th Museum.

3. In keeping with the purpose of similar memorials around the world, only by telling the truth, protecting memory, learning from history, distinguishing between right and wrong, and upholding justice can such a criminal tragedy be prevented from happening again.

4. The goals of the June 4th Museum are to never forget June 4, to invoke our conscience, to pass on the torch, to explain to the public the history of the 1989 democracy movement, and to understand its causes and consequences. It is hoped that both the government and the public can learn from history and together discuss the significance of building a fair and just society.

What’s inside the June 4th Museum
