History shall never be forgotten—former Taiwan president

MA Ying-jeou, who is also a former chairman of the Chinese Kuomintang Party, said that history shall never be forgotten.

The former Taiwan president said China is the biggest victim of such atrocity and stressed that Chinese people on both sides of the Taiwan Strait should seek self-reliance and greater strength so that they would not be bullied and abused anymore.

China remembers the 1937 Nanjing Massacre as a tragic and horrendous event at a time when Japanese troops seized the city and committed atrocities, including arson, rape, looting, torture, and mass executions.

In the memorial hall, a striking sign reads “three hundred thousand victims” on the Nanjing Memorial and is engraved as a reminder of the painful history of the Chinese people.

Ma is currently in China for a landmark trip, hoping to bring peace and improve relations across Taiwan Strait.
