For foreigners, Nanjing is not yet one of the major tourist destinations of China.
Its attractions are not as famous as the Forbidden City in Beijing or the Terracotta Army in Xian. Yet for the visitors who do come, one particular place, a large concrete memorial in the outskirts of the city, is a must-see.
That site is the Memorial Museum of the Great Nanjing Massacre, an event still better known in the West by the title “the Rape of Nanking”.
It commemorates one of the worst atrocities of World War II.
