A Remembrance of the 300,000 Nanjing Massacre victims who died in the World War II Holocaust in China.
This annual event serves to remind everyone of the tragic past and the victims of the Japanese Army atrocities committed during World War II. In a short six to eight weeks in the winter of 1937, the Japanese Imperial Army raped, massacred, and maimed more than 300,000 innocent civilians in Nanjing, China. Today, despite the urging of human rights activists in Japan, Asia, and the world, the Japanese government under Prime Minister Shinzo Abe continues to deny or minimize history and refuses to offer a official national government apology or accept responsibility for its misdeeds to this day.
