A group of old photos on Nanjing taken by the Japanese army which invaded China during the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression (1937 - 1945) were made public on Aug 12.

These photos truly recorded some of the scenes in Nanjing, then capital of China, under Japanese invaders' occupation. Among these photos, the most shocking one is a photo taken in a place littered with dead bodies after a massacre in Nanjing.

A total of five photos in the group of photos, which were taken by Japanese invaders or Japanese army's war correspondents, mainly recorded Nanjing's scenes, its famous sites and Japanese invaders' group photo in Nanjing after it was occupied by the Japanese invaders.

Xiao Yin, collector of these photos, said that he obtained these photos from a collector named Xiao Zhu in Zhejiang. A man in his 80s came to the antique shop owned by Xiao Zhu and brought with him several old photos and a saber, saying that these articles were the things from the Japanese invaders occupying Shaoxing city in east China's Zhejiang province during the war. In addition, three of the group of photos, all of which are about Nanjing, were found from old albums of Japanese invaders.
