Want China Times
President Ma Ying-jeou said the government will mark the 70th anniversary of the end of the
Second Sino-Japanese War and World War II with a series of commemorative events this year.
Rana Mitter, an Oxford University professor and author of Forgotten Ally: China’s World War II, 1937-1945, will be invited to Taiwan to take part in the commemorative events, Ma said while attending an arts event held by the General Association of Chinese Culture.
A grandson of John Rabe, the German businessman who helped 200,000 people evade slaughter during the Nanjing Massacre in 1937-1938, will also visit Taiwan, during which he will accept a citation conferred by the government on Rabe, Ma said. [FULL STORY]
