Galloway, N.J. - The public is invited to a free presentation by Stockton University adjunct instructor Doug Cervi about the Nanking Massacre, an episode of mass murder and rape committed by Japanese troops from December 1937-January 1938 against the residents of Nanjing (then spelled Nanking), which was the capital of the Republic of China.

The program will cover the atrocities committed by the Japanese Imperial Army during the Second Sino-Japanese War and the covert chemical and biological agents used by the Japanese Imperial government during the WWII. The Nanking Massacre took the lives of Chinese civilians and unarmed combatants, with estimates ranging from 40,000 to over 300,000 dead.

The lecture will be held on Friday, March 10 at 10 a.m. at Stockton University at Manahawkin, 712 E. Bay Ave. Light refreshments provided. Please call 609-626-3883 to register.
