안녕하세요? 이한열기념관에 오신 여러분을 환영합니다.
이한열은 1987년 6월 9일 시위에 참여했다가 경찰이 쏜 최루탄에 맞고 쓰러졌습니다.
그의 죽음을 안타까워하는 이들이 그 해 8월 ‘故 이한열 열사 추모사업회’를 만들었습니다. 2010년 사단법인이 된 ‘이한열기념사업회’는 매 해 6월 9일 이한열문화제와 7월 5일 광주 망월동 묘소에서 추모 예배를 진행합니다. 이 밖에 이한열 장학사업으로 2018년 6월 현재 170명이 넘는 학생들에게 2억 원이 넘는 장학금을 지급하였고 2013년부터 연세대학교 교지인 《연세》지와 ‘이한열문학상’을 공동으로 주최하고 있습니다.

이한열기념관은 유족이 국가로부터 받은 배상금과 시민 성금으로 2004년에 세워졌으며 2014년 사립박물관으로 새롭게 개관하였습니다.
이한열기념관은 앞으로 더욱 친근하고 유익한 전시로 여러분을 맞이하고자 합니다.
Welcome to “Lee Han-Yeol Memorial Museum”
Lee Han-Yeol entered Yonsei University as a Business Administration student in 1986. On June 9th 1987, as a 2nd year student, he took part in a protest in front of the main gate of Yonsei University and was hit by a tear-gas canister shot by the police. Wounded severely, he spent 27 days in the ICU of Severance Hospital, and passed away on July 5th. His funeral procession was held on July 9th where 1.6 million people joined.
Since the 1960s, Korea had been under military dictatorship, and suffered severe oppression of freedom. Lee Han-Yeol’s injury during the protest triggered the June Democratic Uprising which was joined by more than 5 million people. His tragic death eventually brought forth democracy in South Korea and paved the way for the first direct presidential election for the first time in 16 years.
In August of the same year, those who grieved his death established “Lee Han-Yeol Memorial Foundation”. The Foundation holds “Lee Han-Yeol Commemoration Ceremony” on June 9th, and a Memorial Service at his grave located in Mangwol-dong, Gwangju, on July 5th every year.
Also, “Lee Han-Yeol Scholarship Project” has granted more than 200 million Korean Won to over 170 students as of June 2018. In addition, the Project jointly hosts “Lee Han-Yeol Literary Award” with Yonsei University’s school magazine
“Establishing of the Memorial Museum is to keep the promise to remember the will of the martyr. It is to look back on where we had started by joining our scattered hands together. It is to pass down the history of democracy to the next generations who seek for directions in their lives.”
The Memorial Museum was founded in 2004 with both the government reparations made to the Lee’s family and voluntary contribution of citizens, and it reopened as a private museum in 2014.
The Museum exhibits and studies the archives of the June Democratic Uprising, and now serves an educational role for the history of democracy in Korea.
Every June, it stages Special Exhibition commemorating Lee Han-Yeol and the June Democratic Uprising, and since 2015, it also holds “Unforgettable Faces Exhibition” every October to honor other martyrs for democracy.
Lee Han-Yeol Memorial Museum will continue to hold accessible and meaningful exhibitions. Thank you for visiting us.
