US-Chiang Kaishek Criminal Acts Exhibition Hall & SACO Prisons

Or the US-Chiang Kaishek Criminal Acts Exhibition Hall & SACO Prisons - some American might not like the name. It was used as a prison by Kuomingtang during the World War II and most prisoners were communists. It was one of Chongqing's popular tourist spots.

The formal name was "Sino-American Cooperation Organization (SACO)", set up in 1942 between the United States and Kuomingtang governments. The United States helped to train and dispatch secret agents for the Kuomingtang government. Displayed here are the restorations of the time: jail cells, red flag, clothing and bedding materials of the prisoners, chains, and other torture instruments.

There were some famous novels and movies describing the life in the prison. Most more than 30-year-old Chinese people are familiar with the stories. It is often mentioned together with the Red Cliff Village.
