Introduction

The Memorial Hall of The War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression is located in Wanping County, beside Lugouqiao Bridge, also known as Marco Polo Bridge, where the the first shots of World War Two were fired in 1937. The Memorial Hall of The War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression was opened in 1987 to mark the 50th Anniversary of what is known in the west as the “Marco Polo Bridge Incident”. President Deng Xiaoping inscribed the name of the hall in his own calligraphy. When the second part of the memorial hall was completed in July 1997, then President Jiang Zemin wrote the inscription personally.
The ”Lugou Lion”, symbolizing the rising up of the Chinese nation in resistance, is located in a large square adjacent to the memorial hall. Next to the square are seven lawns indicating the place where the ‘Marco Polo Bridge Incident’ took place mark the site of the beginning of fourteen years of war against Imperial Japan.
