Nanjing Massacre Memorial Hall

Nanjing Massacre Memorial Hall

In 1937/38  Nanjing was witness to one of worlds haunting events, being the massacre of some 300000 people at the hands of invading forces. At that time Nanjing was the capital of China and Japanese forces had taken control of the city and during the first six to eight weeks of their occupation had performed indescribable atrocities.

The memorial was built in 1985, and later updated and expanded to cover 28000 square metres. It’s located on the original site where the holocaust took place. read more
