Monumen Tugu Muda dan Lawang
Sewu (The Youth Monument and The One Thousand Doors Building)
Youth Monument is a monument in Semarang city to commemorate the five
days war (15 - 20 October 1945) against the Japanese troops. After
Japan's surrender in World War II, there was an absence of ruling power
in Indonesia. This moment was used by the Indonesian leaders to declare
Indonesia's independence on the 17th of August 1945. Japanese forces
were to remain in Indonesia until the Netherlands forces arrived to
reoccupy Indonesia. Unfortunately, this transition period led to many
bloody confrontations with the Indonesian fighters to defend Indonesia's
independence from foreign powers. Semarang city was one of the famous
locations in Indonesia during the war for independence. The bloodiest
battle in Semarang occurred for five days from the 15th to the 20th of
October 1945. The Lawang Sewu (the One Thousand Doors building) was one
of the silent witnesses of the violence in those days.
One Thousand Doors building (Lawang Sewu) was built by the Dutch as the
first Dutch railway company's main office in Indonesia. It was
constructed in 1904 and completed in 1919. The name "Lawang Sewu"
is a Javanese language. "Lawang" means door and "Sewu" means one
thousand. It is called the "One Thousand Doors" building because it has
many doors and windows. In 1942, Japanese army took over Lawang Sewu and
turned it into an army headquarter. The underground structure was turned
into a prison. Rumor has it that Lawang Sewu has underground tunnels to
some locations in Semarang, including to both of Semarang city's oldest
railway stations (Poncol and Tawang). These tunnels were used by the
Dutch troops to secretly move around Semarang. Today, Lawang Sewu is
open for public to discover the history of Semarang city. Lawang Sewu is
located across from the Youth Monument.
