Monumen Pelajar Pejuang / Tentara Pelajar Sriwijaya

(Student War Monument / Sriwijaya Student Soldier)

In the City of Jambi, on the street named “Jl. Dr. Cipto Mangunkusumo,” close to the fruit market known as “Pasar Buah,” stands a monument that was built by the government of Jambi. This monument was erected for the purpose of upholding and honoring the values of sacrifice that were displayed by students that actively worked in the support of the war of independence from Dutch colonial authority. This monument was not only built to honor the sacrifice made by many youth, it’s also a symbol for future generations to learn from, so they will model the same sacrificial lifestyle.
