The 10th session of an international peace exchange program for students started at the Memorial Hall of the Victims in Nanjing Massacre by Japanese Invaders on June 19, when 20 foreign students from Jiangsu Polytechnic College of Agriculture and Forestry learned about the massacre through exhibition, documentary, and a lecture.

The program named after the purple grass, regarded as a peace flower, had the students from Indonesia, Kenya, Tajikistan and Laos. At the memorial hall, the massacre history exhibition left them in shock and silence when they knew the scorched earth and burnt bodies in the killing.

After watching John Magee's documentary footage of the massacre, a Laos student said that he felt deeply uneasy and, with the footage, he seemed to feel the fear of the aircraft roaring overhead and of himself being taken away.

At the end of the session, students won the certificate of completion issued by authorities. The 20 students said that they would like to share this history with more people and help more international friends to understand the massacre and cherish peace.
