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.
