BEIJING, Oct. 10 (Xinhuanet) -- UNESCO's Memory of the World Program has inscribed documents of the Nanjing Massacre from China on their Memory of the World Register.
According to UNESCO, the documents of the Nanjing Massacre consist of three sections. The first section concerns the period of the massacre. The second relates to the post-war investigation and trials of war criminals, which were documented by the Chinese National Government's Military Tribunal. The third part deals with files from the judiciary authorities of the People's Republic of China.
Over 300 thousand Chinese, including defenseless civilians and unarmed soldiers, were murdered when Japanese invaders first occupied the city of Nanjing in 1937.
