The Canadian Nanjingers Association, along with other Chinese groups in Canada, has called on Chinese around the world to hold memorial activities honoring China's National Memorial Day on Dec 13.

The announcement was made at the Memorial Hall of the Victims in Nanjing Massacre by Japanese Invaders in Nanjing, Jiangsu province, on July 12.

According to Wang Haicheng, head of the Canadian Nanjingers Association, a series of photo exhibitions revealing the truth about the Nanjing Massacre has annually been held the past 10 years, and successfully promoted the movement to rectify false descriptions about China's War of Resistance against the Japanese Aggression in Canadian textbooks. The Canadian Nanjingers Association has also held various memorial activities in memory of the victims of Nanjing massacre every year.

During the announcement, Wang called on all Chinese to actively partake in China's National Memorial Day and hold relevant memorial activities in their host countries.

“I want everyone to remember and tell the truth about WWII in Asia to their fellowmen, as well as the nationals of the host country, and remind people of the past and cherish peace,” he said.
