Time passed relentlessly, and the lights on the photo wall went out one after another. Over the years, the number of survivors of the Nanjing Massacre has been declining, but they have suffered a lifetime of blood and tears. They have not dried up and blurred with the passing of their lives. Instead, they have joined together with the tragic experiences of hundreds of thousands of dead compatriots. A page of history that can't bear to read, an unforgettable national memory and world memory.
December 13 this year is the sixth national ceremonial day of the Nanjing Massacre. In the name of our country, we deeply mourn the dead compatriots who were killed by the Japanese invaders, and deeply remember the revolutionary martyrs and national heroes who gave their lives for the victory of the Chinese people's war of resistance against Japan. Friends and friends also engraved this painful memory full of blood, tears, and humiliation in the depths of the hearts of every Chinese child, in the history of human development, to express to the world the lofty development of the Chinese people in the path of peaceful development and a better future for humanity desire.
We cannot forget the misfortunes in history. Massacre, burial, incineration ... 300,000 defenseless fresh lives were brutally deprived by the Japanese invaders in various brutal ways. The heinous crime, the utter shame of the country, the shame of the country, will never be forgotten. "Before Zhaozhao, beware of future generations." Remembering the misfortune in history is to prevent the tragedy from repeating itself. In the 70 years since the founding of New China, under the strong leadership of the Communist Party of China, the Chinese people have marched along the road of rejuvenation. The long-torn Chinese nation has ushered in a historic leap from standing up, getting rich, to becoming strong. Learning from history, Anxiety is in danger. Bloody tears screamed for warning, still in my ears. If you fall behind, you will be beaten. The painful lesson of weakness will be bullied. We should always maintain a sense of crisis and urgency, unite as one, work hard, and protect the people with our strong national strength.
It cannot be forgotten, let alone denied. From house sacrifice to public sacrifice, from one country's sacrifice to sacrifice activities held in multiple countries, from national memory to world memory heritage, the Nanjing Massacre transcended time, ethnicity and national borders, and killed the Manila massacre, died in Bataan, and died in Thailand and Myanmar. The railway and other things together are telling the misfortune of humankind and belong to the common memory of the people of the world. The evidence of this memory is so solid that it cannot be shaken in the slightest. Moving against the tide of history, denying the historical fact of the Nanjing Massacre is denying the common memory of the entire world and all mankind, and will inevitably be strongly condemned by peace-loving people around the world, including the Chinese people. The Nanjing Massacre History Exhibition went abroad and aroused human resonance; related regulations were issued to define the "legal red line" for "fine day" actions that hurt national feelings; survivors and future generations went to Japan to hold testimony rally to tell the local people about the Nanjing Massacre Historical truth, etc. Today, when we defend history, we safeguard this unforgettable national memory and world memory.
Watching yesterday to build a common historical memory is to create a better future. Because of the pain and suffering of this unforgettable war, tens of millions of Chinese people understand that peace is hard to come by and is precious. A series of national ceremonies, such as reading the "Declaration of Peace" and signing on the "Peace Wishing Wall", conveyed the Chinese people's aspirations for peace, upholding peace, and building peace together. It is China's solemn commitment to the world to continue to follow the path of peaceful development. The past has passed, and the future can be expected. We believe that as long as all countries in the world are willing to work together to build a community of shared future for mankind and achieve a win-win situation, peace will be passed from generation to generation, the power of development will continue, and the light of civilization will shine.
