Chinese authorities have begun publishing confessions made by Japanese war criminals who were convicted by military tribunals in China after WWII.
This comes days ahead of the 77th anniversary of the July 7th incident in 1937, which marked the beginning of China's War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression.
There are some figures we should know:
Chinese authorities held over 1,100 Japanese war criminals after 1949.
Investigations and trials lasted for five years, between 1951 and 1956.
Historical records show that at least 30 million Chinese people were killed during China's war against Japanese invasion.
