As one of the top three massacres during World War II, over 300, 000 Chinese civilians and disarmed soldiers were killed and thousands of houses were ruined by Japanese aggressors during the six weeks of bloodshed and looting, leaving the city in almost total devastation.

“Our aim is to make more people, especially the youth, acquainted with the history of the Chinese people to fight against Japanese aggressors, the significance of which is invaluable,” said Luo Zhijun, secretary of the Nanjing City Committee of the CPC. (china.org.cn)
