Jiang was born on Dec. 9, 1929. Before the Japanese invaders entered the city of Nanjing, her father went to southwest China's Chongqing. Her grandma together with her mother took Jiang and her two siblings to the countryside. Jiang once witnessed the Japanese invaders killing two Chinese young men. 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.
