First built by Russian troops, Lushun Prison was later used and extended by the Japanese army. The prison covers 226,000 square meters with a total of 253 cages. There are four darkrooms underground and approximately 15 factories, to produce bedding and clothing, and iron and wood. Before liberation in 1949, many dissidents and opposition members were imprisoned here. The prison stands as a historical monument to commemorate this dark period in Chinese history. Today, it is open to the public as an exhibition hall and is protected by the state as a historical relic.
