On April 16, 2014, the MV Sewol, a South Korean registered passenger ferry, sunk off the southern coast of South Korea killing approximately 300 passengers. Many of the victims were secondary school students from Ansan, near the city of Incheon. The ferry made three round-trips every week from Incheon to Jeju.
The Indiana University Maurer School of Law, led by S.J.D. students Moon Sook Park, Kwangsup Kim, and Yonghwan Choung, erected a memorial to those killed in the tragedy. The memorial was placed in the lobby of the law school for the month of May. Part of the memorial was a guest book that community members could record their thoughts in or just sign their signatures. A digitized copy of the book is presented here, along with photographs and documents related to the memorial.
