China marks victory over Anti-Japanese War
Latest Updated by 2005-08-15 09:40:47

A series of activities were held across China Sunday to mark the 60th anniversary of China's victory of the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression (1937-1945).

A calligraphy and painting exhibition titled "Peace, fraternity and striving to be stronger" opened in Nanjing, capital city of eastern Jiangsu Province, Sunday.

More than 1,000 calligraphy works and paintings on display exposed the furious and repulsive nature of the Japanese militarism, and sang the praises of the courageous spirit of the Chinese people and world righteous forces in fighting against invaders.

Authors of the calligraphy works and paintings were aged between four and 92. Through their works, they called on people to cherish life, safeguard peace and never forget history.

Also on Sunday, an exhibition of more than 180 calligraphy works and paintings from both sides of the Taiwan Straits opened in Fuzhou, capital city of east China's Fujian Province, to mark the 60th anniversary of China's victory of the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression.

These exhibits also included calligraphy works and paintings from Singapore, the Philippines, the Republic of Korea and Japan.

Southwest China's Chongqing Municipality will hold a series of activities, including artistic performances, concerts, screening of films and teleplays with the theme of anti-Japanese aggression from mid-August to mid-October.

Organizers said that the events are designed to help the mass of people, specially youths, to have a better understanding of the history of China and people across the world's fighting against Fascist aggression, and sing the praises of the unyielding spirit of the Chinese people in fighting against Japanese aggression under the leadership of the Communist Party of China.

Sponsored by the Shandong Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China and Shandong provincial government, an exhibition which reproduces the historical scenes of the Chinese army and civilians' fighting against Japanese invaders will be staged at the State Museum from Aug. 16-25.

The exhibition, consisting of more than 80 precious relics and over 200 historical pictures, also showcased the new developments in Yimeng area in Shandong in the new historical period. Yimeng was then an important base for fighting Japanese invaders.

Books on themes related to World War II and the Chinese People's War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression became bestsellers in China over the past several months.

An exhibition of over 500 varieties of publications related to such topics became a top attraction among common readers in Kunming, capital city of southwest China's Yunnan Province, on Sunday.

"The pictures and the words all make you feel the sincerity and true love coming from the bottom of the heart...We should cherish peace!" said Chen Xiang, a young man who visited the exhibition and bought a book on a touching story of how a Chinese farmer had rescued a member of the Flying Tigers.

The Flying Tigers was an American Volunteer Group, organized by Claire Lee Chennault in 1941, to help China fight off invading Japanese soldiers during World War II.
