Lyu Jinbao, a 94-year-old survivor of the Nanjing Massacre, died on Tuesday morning in Nanjing, capital of East China's Jiangsu province, according to the Memorial Hall for the Victims of the Nanjing Massacre by Japanese Invaders.
Born on April 12, 1924, Lu was 13 when the then-capital of China was captured by the Japanese in December 1937. His head was injured in an air raid, and shell fragments entered his cranium. From that day, he was blind due to poor medical conditions and doctors' failing to remove the fragments from his head.
The man said in earlier interviews the Japanese army committed numerous crimes in the eight years it invaded China, and the Chinese should educate their young generations to remember history, according to the official website of the memorial hall.
