Nanjing Massacre Museum Tour
Learn what happened to the people of Nanjing during the six-week period following the Japanese capture of Nanjing, then capital of the Republic of China, in 1937.
You will take the fast speed train to Nanjing and visit the Nanjing Massacre Museum to learn what happened to the people of Nanjing during the six-week period following the Japanese capture of Nanjing, then capital of the Republic of China, in 1937. The museum is built on the site, where thousands of bodies have been excavated from mass graves. Through a versatility of means for exhibitions, you will learn about the tragedy of the atrocities in Nanjing.
Before the tour, we recommend you to read the following book by Iris Chang:
The Rape of Nanking, a book that recounts the horrible events in that eastern Chinese city under Japanese occupation in the late 1930s. Nanking, she writes, served as a kind of laboratory in which Japanese soldiers were taught to slaughter unarmed, unresisting civilians, as they would later do throughout Asia. Likening their victims to insects and animals, the Japanese commanders orchestrated a campaign in which several hundred thousand--no one is sure just how many--Chinese soldiers and noncombatants alike were killed. Chang turns up an unlikely hero in German businessman John Rabe, a devoted member of the Nazi party who importuned Adolf Hitler to intervene and stop the slaughter, and who personally saved the lives of countless residents of Nanking. She also suggests that the Japanese government pay reparations and apologize for its army's horrific acts of 60 years ago.
