Starting Tuesday, family members of the victims of the massacre began a series of commemoration activities such as laying flowers and burning incense before the memorial wall where the victims’ names are engraved

Zhou Wanrong‘s name was engraved on the wall on Nov. 29, which became the 10,665th name on the wall

Tao said that she and her then five-year-old younger sister witnessed that their father and several other Chinese were taken away by Japanese soldiers on Dec. 14, 1937. They never came back

Wei Dongmei, the granddaughter of another victim called Wei Shaomin, touched his name engraved on the wall. “Grandpa, I’m here to see you,” she said

Wei Shaomin was taken away by Japanese troops not far from his home and then killed by seven gunshots on Dec. 13, 1937. Only two of his seven children were known today. All the others either died or were given away to other families

“History should not be forgotten. It must be respected. Peace and happiness should not be desecrated,” she said. “I hope that everyone can spread the seeds of peace and happiness to every corner of the world.”
