Memorial Hall to the Victims in the Nanjing Massacre

Last updated by lavender0108 at 2013-11-4

The Memorial Hall to the Victims in the Nanjing Massacre was built by Nanjing Municipal Government in 1985 in memory of the victims and extended in 1995, covering an area of 28,000 sq meters (302,400 sq ft). It is a specialized museum of the execution sites and mass burial places of the massacre. Here you can know a lot of details of this miserable history by the means of documents, architecture, cultural relics, movies and so on.

In this solemn and imposing grey marble architecture, there are three parts: the outdoor exhibition hall, the remains of the victims display and the historical documents exhibits. The outdoor exhibition hall is the cemetery structure style with the theme of grief and indignation, life and death by statues, group sculptures and relief carvings together with the monument, the name list wall for the victims and some building relics. The remains of the victims display room is coffin-shaped, where keeps the remaining bones of victims in the massacre. It reminds people the miserable history of the massacre. Another tomb-like exhibition hall, which is buried half underground, contains over 1000 precious items, which recreate the massacre and uncover the outrage committed by the Japanese invaders by the means of paintings, sculptures and multi-media as well as documentary materials or films . The hall was built not only as the important museum for pursuing peace and communication, but also as the base for patriotism education. .

I visited the Nanjing Massacre Memorial less than 6 months after visiting another site scarred by the atrocities of WWII.  I was interested to see how the Chinese portrayed the destruction the Japanese brought to Nanjing during that unfortunate time in human history.  While disturbed and disgusted, I highly recommend this architectural wonder to anyone who understands the need to experience history firsthand to truly understand.
