Opened 17 years ago, the memorial hall to commemorate Chinese people's war of resistance against Japanese invasion, located in southwest suburbs of Beijing, has accepted nearly 10 million visitors, who have left their remarks and commentary in piles of books.

Sixty years after the World War II, the painful memories of the Japanese invasion still exist among Chinese people, together with the dear wish to pursue peace.

It is the history that the greatest nation fought against Japanese invasion with the will to keep their dignity. History not only lives in books, but vividly exhibited in the memorial hall.

Wang Xinhua, curator of the memorial hall, was proud that an exhibition to commemorate the 60th anniversary of victory of the Chinese people's resistance war against Japanese aggression is now staged in the hall, which is the most comprehensive exhibition in the country.

Divided into eight parts, the exhibition brings forth the united efforts by military and civilians to sacrifice their lives for the ultimate purpose of safeguard their motherland and their dignity.

"I feel so shameful that I could not die in fighting against Japanese invasion." The poetry, deeply moved hundreds of visitors, was written by a famous anti-Japanese-aggression hero Ji Hongchang, several minutes before his death 60 years ago.

Not only words can refresh visitors' memory about the war, other historical remains as sabers, medals, and trophies, also tell numerous stories about atrocities committed by the Japanese invaders, and stories about courage, heroism, resistance, and patriotism by the Chinese.

Statistics show that in the nationwide anti-Japanese invasion war, hundreds of thousands Chinese were hurt or killed in the germ wars by Japanese invaders.

"Remember history and never forget the past, with cherishing attitude toward peace and exploring future", words by Chinese president Hu Jintao are the best footnote to the main theme of the last part of the exhibition--taking history as the mirror and facing the future.

"After visiting the memorial hall, I feel that we Chinese should never forget the shame we once experienced, and unite together to build a great country," said Li Siyang, a student from Beijing Jiaomen Primary School.
