Memorial Arch in Tappan Square, Oberlin College

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I am grieved by the war and have not slept.”

“Who has the strength to right Heaven and earth?”

Those words are inscribed on a plaque given by the Class of 1994, in memory of the Chinese citizens killed in the violence of 1900. The Memorial Arch was originally dedicated in spring 1903 in commemoration of the Oberlin missionaries killed in the Chinese Boxer Rebellion.
