I thank Ms. Zhang -- the originator of this thread for the photos -- maybe they could have been PS a little bit more to make them brighter.

As the number of survivors keeps dwindling down year by year, I believe we should make a video for each of the remaining 100 survivors in which we should let them recall the events in their own words for educating the future generations.

This might have been done already but I am not aware of it.

The last time I made a special trip to go to the museum, it was closed on a Monday.
