This site, by the Arch of Triumph, was completed in 1987 and marks Kim Il Sung's October 14, 1945 speech in which the population got their first real look at him. A mural illustrates the event (though no depictions of the Soviet sponsors are included), and a stone slab quotes Kim's remarks on rebuilding Korea.
