Nanjing Massacre Memorial Hall

30 12 2010

That was a touching moment of our weekend in Nanjing.

A memorial for never forget the people that died for nothing, died only because of the madness and the brutality of the invading Japanese army. A place to keep alive the memory of not necessary atrocities that nobody can just sign of as war crimes. These were crimes against humanity. Against reason.

300thousand reasons for hoping in peace..

Unfortunately also a memorial to the hate that many Chinese still feel against Japan and everything Japanese.

A place that touch me deeply: I love Japan for many reasons, but inside this place one can only hate what humans manage to do when they have no limit, when they have no reason, when they decide to behave as animals.

And I got so angry seeing how young Chinese students (early 20) behaved: taking smiling pictures in front of the extremely touching sculptures telling stories no one would want ever hear or an idiot Chinese talking at the phone and counting the number of skulls he could see in a mass grave area… Teenagers are idiots everywhere..

The memorial is worth visiting but be ready to feel strong emotions.
