The Memorial Hall for Compatriots killed in the Nanjing Massacre by Japanese Forces of Aggression, located in the southwestern corner of Nanjing known as Jiangdongmen, was built in memory of the 300,000 victims in the event which lasted from December 1937 to January 1938.
The Nanjing Memorial is the first thematic memorial of the history of Anti-Japanese War in China and has become an important site for international communities to pray for PEACE as well as a site for historical and cultural exchanges.
On Jun. 5 in 2015, in celebration of the 70th anniversary of the victory of global anti-fascism war and China’s anti-Japanese war, SEU Confucius Institute organized the international students who won the Confucius Institute Scholarship to visit Memorial. By learning the miserable period of Chinese history, the students became more familiar with Chinese history, culture and current situation. Meanwhile, the friendship between China and foreign countries was strengthened as well.
