China will host a series of activities to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the victory of the Chinese People's War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression in the next three months.
CRI's XYee has more.
Dozens of films, television works and publications will be presented across China from July to October.
Deputy chief of China's State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television Tian Jin says these works will highlight China's contributions to the World Anti-fascism War and promote patriotism.
"Through the film and television works and publications, we celebrate the great historical significance of the victory of the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression and our great national spirit focusing on patriotism. Those works and publications reflect the hardships of the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression, highlight the importance of the Chinese battlefield in the World Anti-fascism War, inspire national spirit and extol patriotic values."
Vice Cultural Minister Dong Wei says in terms of stage productions, over 180 repertoires and newly-created plays will be performed nationwide.
He adds that the Ministry of Culture will hold an art exhibition at the National Art Museum of China from August 10 to September 20 in collaboration with other departments.
"So far, we have received more than 1,500 artworks from all over the country, and more than 400 excellent works will be presented to the general public."
The General Political Department of China's armed forces will also hold exhibitions, release films, documentaries and books, and stage performances.
Li Zhensheng, with the Army's General Political Department says the exhibitions will help people understand that period of history in a 'comprehensive' way.
"We will hold two exhibitions. One is at the Military Museum between July 15 and Sept. 15, at which we will display a series of pictures, cultural relics and charts of important historical value. They will demonstrate the entire course of the Chinese people and the army's war of resistance against Japanese aggression led by the Communist Party of China in a comprehensive way."
The Chinese People's War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression was an important part of the world's anti-fascist war.
Incomplete statistics show that more than 35 million Chinese soldiers and civilians lost their lives in the war.
For CRI, I'm XYee.
