A map showing the routes of Ahn’s activities and his refugee life overseas

Ahn took refugee overseas in 1907 and established Dongui-hoe in order to consolidate the ethnic Korean society in Primorskiy Krai (a.k.a. “Yeonhaeju” in Korean) and to lead relief efforts for those suffering hardships. Ahn actively participated in the anti-Japanese independence movement.
The Righteous Army Movement

Ahn attempted to help save the nation with the power of the righteous army movement and raided the Japanese military camps in Korea. Ahn showed his spirit of loving peace by releasing the captive Japanese soldiers to cope with the public law of the world.
