Nanjing has a prominent place in Chinese history and culture having been the capital of China for several period including before World War II swept Asia Pacific. It was therefore the seat of government when the Japanese invaded China. Having said that, Nanjing suffered the brunt of Japanese brutality.
Nanjing Memorial Hall
Built in 1985 in memory of the 300,000 victims who lost their lives during the Nanjing Massacre.
It occupies a total area of approximately 28,000 square meters, including about 3,000 square meters of building floor space.
The memorial consists of three major parts: outdoor exhibits, sheltered skeletal remains of victims, and an exhibition hall of historical documents.
An accurate estimation of the death toll in the massacre has not been achieved because most of the Japanese military records on the killings were deliberately destroyed or kept secret shortly after the surrender of Japan in 1945. The International Military Tribunal of the Far East estimated in 1948 over 200,000 Chinese were killed in the incident.Source
It was in the exhibition hall where we spent a lot of time. So many historical accounts to read and digest---historical records and objects and uses architecture, sculptures, and videos to illustrate what happened during the Nanjing Massacre.
Many historical items were donated by Japanese members of a Japanese–Chinese friendship group, which also donated a garden located on the museum grounds.
