Nanking Massacre Candlelight Vigil and Photograph Exhibit

Auschwitz. Dachau. Treblinka.


Many people have heard of and remember the atrocities committed by the Nazi regime during the Holocaust, but few are aware of the horrors experienced in the Far East in the same era. Over 20 million Chinese civilians were mercilessly slaughtered by their Japanese invaders between 1931-1945 in what as been called the "Asian Holocaust."

The Nanking Massacre of 1937 is the most well known event in this span. During this week long event, over 300,000 Chinese civilians, residents of the city of Nanking were murdered in their homes and in the streets.

To honor those lost, there will be a candlelight vigil on the diag at 9:00 PM tomorrow, November 9th. The vigil will be accompanied by an address from keynote speaker Ignatius Ding, spokesperson for the Executive Committee of the Global Alliance for Preserving the History of World War II in Asia. It is sure to be a moving event. Related to this event, there will also be a photographic exhibit in the second floor ballroom of Haven Hall from 7:00 PM-9:00 PM.

Purpose of this Blog

As a Resident Advisor in Bursley Hall, I recieve a great deal of information announcing upcoming events on campus, but have very little way of annoucing them to the people who may get some value from attending.

As a result, I will be posting a variety of hall related events on this blog which will be accessible via a group blog which will contain links to all sorts of campus activities. The goal of this will be to let residents of 5th Sanford and other members of our campus community know how to get involved in various events in which I am a part.

As a participant on this site, you are encouraged to attend the posted events and then leave feedback in the comments section. Possible comments may include thoughts on the event, what you liked and disliked, information you find useful about the organization, or anything else pertaining to the activity. Feel free to leave honest feedback, but please follow the guidelines for leaving comments I have listed below.


Rules for Use:

1) Comments MUST be constructive and pertain solely to the event posted on the blog. No comments about outside activities or other miscellaneous unrelated topic.

2) Let's leave political affiliations at the door! I don't care, and niether do other viewers of this site, what you think of the upcoming speaker on campus. The purpose of this blog is just to let you know what is going on, not to make a political statement.

3) No foul or abusive language. If you disagree with someone's assessment of an event do it without belittling that person's opinion or verbally abusing another site user.

Violation of any of these rules will result in the termination of your priviledge to use this site.
