The Nanjing Massacre Remembered: A Panel Discussion in Toronto
Facing History and Ourselves will co-host and participate in a panel discussion in Toronto, Ontario, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Nanjing Massacre, when the Japanese Imperial Army brutally raped, tortured, and murdered thousands of Chinese men, women, and children. Facing History’s Senior Research and Development Associate Fran Sterling will be featured as a panelist alongside novelist Joy Kogawa, educator Gerry Connelly, and playwright Diana Tso. The discussion will be lead by CBC Radio’s Michael Enright.
Panelists will explore questions such as, “Where does the responsibility for awareness lie?” and “How can collective memory be created?” while examining how art and education can help move communities toward peace, reconciliation, and healing.
“Collective Amnesia: 75 Years After the Nanjing Massacre” takes place Monday, November 5 at 7:00 p.m. The conversation, held at Toronto’s William Doo Auditorium at New College, is free and open to the public.
