The Memorial Hall of the Victims in Nanjing Massacre by Japanese Invaders is located in one of the original massacre sites of the Japanese massacre. It is an exhibition hall for historical relics, architecture, sculpture, film and television, and other comprehensive techniques to fully display the “Nanjing Massacre” massacre.
The Memorial Hall of the Victims in Nanjing Massacre by Japanese Invaders is divided into three parts: square display, historical materials display, and remains display. The square display hall has a cross-shaped monument that records the time of the massacre, the “wailing wall” with the names of the victims, reliefs that record the history of the massacre, a large stone sculpture of a mother, and the site of the “mass grave”. In the flat-topped semi-underground tomb-shaped historical materials display hall, there are exhibitions such as “Human Catastrophe-Historical Facts of the Nanjing Massacre by Japanese Invaders” and “Victory 1945”. The historical materials on display include photos of the scene of the Japanese massacre, such as “Rabe’s Diary and other documents and reports that recorded the massacre, survivors’ roster and testimonies, military supplies used by the Japanese army during the massacre, diaries and confessions of Japanese officers and soldiers who committed crimes, etc. There are several film and television halls in the exhibition hall, which are used to broadcast documentaries and films about the Nanjing Massacre and the Anti-Japanese War. In the coffin-shaped bones showroom, you can see the remains of some of the victims excavated from the “mass grave”, which is ironclad evidence of the atrocities committed by the Japanese invaders in the Nanjing Massacre. There are still “12 seconds” in the tail hall. A drop of water falls from high above every 12 seconds. The lamp with the portrait of the victim on the side wall flashes out, symbolizing the death of a life.
The Memorial Hall of the Victims in Nanjing Massacre by Japanese Invaders is a comprehensive museum about the history of the Nanjing Massacre, the Japanese “comfort women” system, and the victory of the World Anti-Fascist War. It displays the Nanjing Massacre, the Japanese “comfort women” system, and the history of the great victory of the People’s War of Resistance Against Japan. The photos, various cultural relics, and video materials wisely and solemnly express the five themes of atrocities, resistance, victory, trial, and peace.
