A memorial dedicated to the victims of Japanese Occupation during World War 2. A great museum bringing back a sad side of history. War is ugly. Mass killing is very ugly. Be ready to walk down a heart-broken path of the past.

This memorial and museum is much larger than at first glance. It could very easily turn into a visit lasting an entire day if you're into history circa 1912 (end of Qing Dynasty) - late 1940s (end of WW2 and end of Chinese Civil War)....More

In absence of the write up of the atrocity committed by Japanese army in Nanjing , this place serves an important reminder to the world that Peace is priceless but is so fragile not to be taken lightly.
