Rare photos of Japanese WWII surrender released
    2015-04-23  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    A MUSEUM in Zhijiang, Hunan Province, on April 17 released 32 rare photos showing the moment the Japanese troops surrendered to China on Aug. 21, 1945. American veteran Joe Day donated the photos. This comes as the country marks the 70th anniversary of its victory in the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression (1937-1945).

    On Aug. 21, 1945, six days after the Japanese emperor announced an end to the war, his troops in China surrendered in Zhijiang.

    The county has a special meaning for Chinese people — It was the site of the last battle between the Chinese army and the Japanese invaders.

    Day said the photos, which were taken on Kodak color film, should return to where the war took place. Day left the United Stated after he finished his first year at MIT. He then joined the army as a signalman for the Flying Tigers (The American Volunteer Group) and was sent to China.

    Here we select several photos commemorate that monumental event.(Tan Yifan)
