A large-scale group bronze-sculptures entitled "Fleeing from Massacre" were being put into place Sunday at the square beside the Memorial Hall of the Nanjing Massacre in city Nanjing.

The group sculptures, composed of 10 parts, vividly portray desperate citizens of Nanjing fleeing the city where the Japanese invaders slaughtered over 300,000 innocent Nanjing citizens in December,1937.

Chinese preeminent sculptor Wu Weishan spent one and a half years in producing the artwork, hoping to remind people "not to forget the history and look to the future".
