An exhibition of valuable artefacts and photographs will be held at the Museum of Coastal Defence in Shau Kei Wan to commemorate the 60th anniversary of China's War of Resistance against Japan.

The countries fought two wars in modern history - the Sino-Japanese War in 1894 that ended in China's defeat, and the full-scale war in 1937 when the famous July 7 Incident occurred at Marco Polo Bridge in Beijing. This then led to the tragic Nanjing Massacre five months later.

The Nationalists and Communists co-operated in the second war. China finally won the eight-year War of Resistance when Japan surrendered on August 15, 1945.

The exhibition runs from July 1 to January 4, 2006, from 10am to 5pm daily (except Thursdays). A free shuttle bus will be available. For more information, visit
