The heroic exploits of Kuomintang (KMT) martyrs in the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression (1937-1945) will for the first time be displayed in Yuhuatai Memorial Hall for fallen revolutionaries in Nanjing, capital of east China's Jiangsu Province.

The deeds of the four KMT military officers, who died in Yuhuatai area in 1937 while fighting the Japanese invaders in the battle of Nanjing will be included in the memorial hall's exhibition, the hall's administration authority told Xinhua Friday.

The theme of exhibition in the memorial hall will be "the rise of Chinese nation" when the hall, which is under remodeling, finishes the engineering work by July 1, 2011, said Ji Jianping, curator of the hall.

"The biggest change in the hall after the remodeling will be the inclusion of the four KMT martyrs' deeds to the exhibition," Ji said.

The four KMT officers are Major General Zhu Chi, Commander of the 262nd Brigade, Major General Gao Zhisong, Commander of the 264th Brigade, Colonel Hua Pinzhang, Deputy Commander of the 262nd Brigade, and Colonel Han Xianyuan, Commander of the 524th Regiment with the 262nd Brigade.

They have all been posthumously acknowledged as revolutionary martyrs by China's Ministry of Civil Affairs.
