Tugu Pahlawan, a Historical Monument
On Thursday, March 10th, 2005 I went to
Tugu Pahlawan on Jalan Pahlawan
in Surabaya. Tugu Pahlawan was built
in 1994 by Ir.Sugeng Gunadi, and was
legaled by Mr. Abdul Wahid on February 19th 2000.
I went together with my friends, my teachers,
and Mr. Flat Stanley by car. We were really happy.
We could imagine how beautiful there.
A woman helped us and told the story about
the heroes stones there. She was so kind and
made us understand about the heroes stones.
We also listened to the speech of Bung Tomo,
the leader of Arek-arek Suroboyo.
He was a strong man.
Then we went to the second floor to see many
ancient things, such as: guns, diorama statis,
and an old-fashioned radio used by Bung Tomo
to burn the spirit of Arek-arek Suroboyo. Those
things were used to fight another country
that wanted to take the Indonesia’s freedom.
The diorama tells about:
a. The Establishment of the people’s security
organization and resistance militia. Organization
on Bubutan street, Sept 4th, 1945.
b. The Flag Incident at Yamato Hotel, Sept 19th,1945.
c. The Establishment of the Indonesia National
Commitee, August 27th,1945.
One thing that made us admire was watching the film about Indonesia’s war against Dutch and British.
About 12 in the afternoon we left the museum and went back to school. We were really happy, we would never forget it. And we would like to thank for Indonesia.
