I have previously read about the Nanjing Massacre so I knew about the historical context but it did not prepare me emotionally for the actual visit. Seeing some of the photographs and the skeletons of the victims did move me to tears and it is beyond comprehension how inhumane people can be. It was quite emotionally draining but a very humbling experience. It is a part of WWII that has not been covered enough and I think it shed more light for me as well as empathize why the Chinese people feel the way they do. I'm glad John Rabe and Minnie Mautrin were also mentioned and honored. A must-do if you are in Nanjing
