Memorial Hall of the Nanjing Massacre
Wartime history weighs heavily on Nanjing, which was the scene of brutal atrocities committed by the invading Japanese army. The well-curated and intensely moving Memorial Hall of the Nanjing Massacre commemorates the events between December 1937 and February 1938 when as many as an estimated 300,000 Chinese soldiers and civilians were killed. Sculptures and art, a reflecting pool, and a viewing hall erected over the skeletons in a mass grave make this a disturbing but essential memorial to a dark period in Nanjing’s history. Open 8:00 AM – 5:30 PM, closed on Monday. Located at 418 Shuiximen Dajie.
Free admission. Tel: +86 25 8661 2230. Visit nj1937.org/english.
