10 warriors were buried in the first raw at the 6th graveyard. On May 4, 1949, when the South Korea was in a confrontation with the North Korea by the 38th parallel, they dashed into the enemy’s position carrying primed bombs and broke the position. They died heroic deaths to recapture of the hill of Songak in Gaeseong that had been illegally taken by the North Korean army. They are 2nd Lieutenant Seo Bu-deok and Master sergeant Kim Jong-hea, Yoon Seung-won, Lee Hee-bok, Park Pyeong-seo, Hwang Geum-jae, Yang Yong-sun, Yoon Ok-chun, Oh Je-ryong and Park Chang-geun.
On May 4, 1955, which is the exact same date when these warriors were all fallen, the Ten Human Bombs Memorial was built to pray for the repose of these 10 warriors’ souls, cherish the memory of their great achievement and hand down the meaning to posterity for a long time.
To build this memorial, General Kim Suk-won, who was the divisional commander at that time when the 10 warriors died heroic deaths, was in the forefront and organized “Ten Human Bombs Memorial Building Committee” which philanthropist in Gaeseong and normal community leaders joined in.
This memorial shaped 5-story tower on the podium of the bottom. It is getting narrow when it goes up. An epitaph is inscribed on the very first bottom, and the English writing, ‘THE TEN BRAVE WARRIOR’, is written on the second bottom. On the top of that, the 10 warriors’ ranks and names are inscribed. The inscription, ‘The Ten Human Bombs Memorial’, is deeply cut on the very top.
