February 25 2011 - Nanjing, Jiangsu province, China - Some chinese visitors are looking at the Peace Statue in the courtyard of the new museum dedicated to the "Nanjing massacre". It was perpetrated in december 1937, when Japanese troops murdered thousands of chinese civilians and prisoners after the city had surrendered.
