A visit to the Nanjing Massacre Memorial Hall, also known as the Memorial for Compatriots Killed in the Nanjing Massacre by Japanese Forces of Aggression, is a solemn reminder of the country's tragic history. The hall remembers all those who were tortured and killed during the Japanese occupation of Nanjing in 1937. The hall itself is located on one of the sites that the Japanese used for executions and burials. The exhibition includes statues and paintings from this period in history, and a stone tablet with names of the victims along with the remaining bones of those that died here. Admission is free, and some signage and information is displayed in English.
