Photo taken on Sept. 28, 2017 shows Xue displaying scars left by the Japanese invaders; Xue staying at home (C top); Xue walking with her son (C L central); Xue watching TV at home (C L bottom); Xue reading newspapers (C R central); Xue showing her certificate of Nanjing Massacre survivor (C R bottom); Xue showing her pet turtle (R). Xue was born on Jan. 11, 1924. While she was running away from Japanese invaders to avoid being raped, she was stabbed with a bayonet at the chest. The year 2017 marks the 80th anniversary of the Nanjing Massacre, in which more than 300,000 Chinese were killed by the Japanese invaders who occupied Nanjing on Dec. 13, 1937, marking the start of six weeks of destruction, pillage, rape and slaughter in the city. There are only less than 100 living survivors of the atrocity. Reporters from Xinhua spent many years to look for the survivors of Nanjing Massacre and record their current lives.
