My translation of the essay:- “’The bullet holes of that year have gradually disappeared. The bloodstains of that year have gradually been wiped clean. Everything seems to have returned to normal before our eyes. But right in front of us is this name list, which has retained the numerous bullet marks left by those who ordered the killings and the bloodstains of those who died. Please do not just flip the name list over. Please do not hastily cover up the wounds on our bodies. Because we have paid too much. We can’t afford to pay more.’
