Historical facts of the 1937 Nanjing Massacre are now being showcased in the Memorial de Caen museum in France. The special exhibition, covering 800 square meters, displays more than 270 historical photos, as well as diaries, letters and other documents from diplomats, professors, doctors and reporters from the 1930s.

The exhibition will run from October 22 until December 15, two days after China's third National Memorial Day for the Nanjing Massacre Victims.

The two parties will also promote the introduction of Japanese invasion of China as well as the contribution Chinese people made in the victory of World War II in textbooks of France and Europe.

Opened on June 6, 1988, the Memorial de Caen museum is dedicated to the history of violence and intensive, outstanding conflict in the 20th Century, looking at the causes and courses of the conflicts.

It is the only European museum that recounts and explains World War II from a global perspective, and it is also the first one in Europe to display historical facts about the 1937 Nanjing Massacre.
