Deposition of Two Survivors from Nanjing Massacre NotarizedOn the day in memory of the victims of the Nanjing Massacre, the Nanjing notarial office notarized the deposition of two survivors, Sun Zhongfang and Song Suhua.
In her testimony, Sun said she was born in 1914 in Pingshi Street, Nanjing. At the night when Nanjing fell into the hands of Japanese invaders, some Japanese soldiers broke into her home, raped her pregnant sister-in-law and killed her. Sun escaped as she was hiding in a pond then. After the soldiers left, she found a frightening scene on the way--- the corpses lying here and there along the street when she was on her way to the hostel of the Foreign Ministry. Sun also saw that a group of six or seven captured Kuomintang soldiers who were bound together was killed by the Japanese with a Machine gun by the side of a bridge.
Leaving Nanjing at the age of eleven, Song Suhua is now 74 years old. At that time, she was living nearby the Presidential Mansions. On the very day of Japanese breakthrough into Nanjing, she escaped death by hiding herself in the reed. The next day, she ran away from Nanjing with the help of others. On the way she also witnessed the shocking scenes of setting fire, killing and looting by the Japanese invading soldiers.
The public notaries were sent to the Memorial Hall for Nanjing Massacre to notarize the words as soon as they heard from the application by Sun and Song. The deposition will be recorded in the history as the lawfully enforced proof of Japanese invasion to China.
