NANJING, Oct. 28 (Xinhua) -- Ten Nanjing Massacre survivors gathered and celebrated the Chongyang Festival, which falls Saturday, in the eastern Chinese city of Nanjing.
The 10 people each aged around 90 years old visited tourist attractions with their families.
"It feels good to visit Nanjing on the Chongyang Festival," said Xia Shuqing, one of the survivors.
The Chongyang Festival falls on the ninth day of the ninth lunar month, and is a day to pay respect to seniors in China.
The year 2017 marks the 80th anniversary of the Nanjing Massacre, in which more than 300,000 Chinese were brutally murdered by Japanese invaders when they occupied Nanjing on Dec. 13, 1937, marking the start of six weeks of destruction, pillage, rape and slaughter in Nanjing.
There are only 100 living survivors of the atrocity.
