Editor's note: A proposal by a NPC deputy on rebuilding the Yuanmingyuan (the old Summer Palace) Park has sparked heated debate online. The park, which was torched by the invading British and French troops after plundering countless treasures in 1860, is now mostly in ruins. Should the old Summer Palace be restored to its original state? Readers share their opinions.


Let China and the Chinese remember this forever. The consequences of being weak and disunited lead to humiliation, oppression and rampage. Let us highlight with a plaque and a museum offering to recall and recant these atrocities for future generation of Chinese not to be subjected to this same tragedy again.
