There is little room for subtlety at the Museum of Chinese People’s Resistance Against the Japanese Invasion.
Ahead of the 70th anniversary of the “Chinese People’s Anti-Japanese War and the World Anti-Fascist War Victory Commemoration Day,” as the end of World War II is known here, the museum has an array of wartime Japanese artifacts — including flags, medals and guns — in a special display case under a glass floor.
“We want to keep Japan under our feet,” said Li Yake, a 22-year-old college student doing a summer internship at the museum as she led visitors around the exhibition.
