Cen Honglan was born on July 5, 1934. Her family moved to Nanjing in 1930 from a famine-stricken area in Jiangsu. In 1937, Cen Honglan's jaw got injured from Japanese invaders' gunshot, and her little brother Cen Xiaosan was burned alive in a house. Cen Honglan now lives in Suqian and has 5 children. This year marks the 82nd 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. By Dec. 12, 2019, the number of registered survivors of the massacre has decreased to 78. Reporters from Xinhua spent many years to look for the survivors of Nanjing Massacre and record their current lives. (Xinhua/Han Yuqing, Ji Chunpeng, Li Xiang)
