General Aung San Museum crowded with people on 68th anniversary of Martyrs’ Day.

The General Aung San Museum in Bahan township here was packed with enthusiasts on Sunday, Martyrs’ Day, which has entered its 68th anniversary.
Tens of hundreds of visitors including students and monks went on a study tour at the museum, a place where General Aung San lived with his family before being assassinated.
“I’m a man but today I’m in tears,” said Ko Wunna, a regular visitor to the museum on every anniversary of the celebration of Martyrs’ Day, adding that he also paid tribute to the fallen heroes at Martyrs’ Mausoleum.
On display at the museum are the library, the dining room, the bedroom and the car the national leader used.
Daw Dhammatheri, aged 78, a Buddhist nun from a town in Bago Division, said that it was her first tribute ever paid at the mausoleum.
“I’m not feeling well, but I have never been to the mausoleum and so I have ever wanted to pay tribute to the martyrs assassinated by treacherous persons at least once.”
The General Aung San Museum is kept open to the public except Monday and national holidays.
Similarly, crowds thronged parks with the Statue of General Aung San.—GNLM
