Opens in the National Museum of China to run for 20 days showing hundreds of documents and photos, some never released before. The Nanking Massacre refers to the 1937 Dec 13 -1938 Feb massacre which occured in the former Chinese capital of Nanking where Japanese forces murdered 300 000 or so Chinese civilians and surrendered soldiers turning the Yangtse River waters which runs through Nanking red for several days. 20 000-80 000 women and girls were also raped by the Japanese soldiers. This was not an isolated incident with Japanese Imperial soldiers killing up to 35 million Chinese between 1937-1945 and raping millions more chinese women and girls (exact numbers will never be known since not a single woman has ever come forward to admit she was raped by the japanese during WW2) . Please note women raped are separate from the Comfort women system as the comfort women were forced sex slaves kept in army brothels whilst rapes are classified by me as those not taken into army brothels but nevertheless raped in their homes by invading Japanese armies.
