China To Commemorate 75th Anniversary of WW2 Triumph Over Japan

China President Xi Jinping will lead a host of other leaders of his nation to participate in an event on Thursday (September 3), commemorating the 75th anniversary of the victory over Japan in World War Two.

People from all walks of life will attend the event in the capital city of Beijing, as they celebrate the historical win of the Chinese People’s War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression.

People will flock over to the Military Museum of the Chinese People’s Revolution in the city as they present flowers to soldiers who lost their lives in the war. The event will be showcased live by Chinese media groups to their citizens.

Despite World War Two ending 75 years ago, not all countries commemorate it on the same day, with China setting September 3 as the newly formalized historical day for Victory Day, back in 2014. The nation commemorates the memorable win against the Japanese with a military march.

In 2015, the Chinese State Council decided to announce the day as a national holiday, with the issued notice to the general public, stating – “The move aims to allow people around the country to participate in activities to commemorate China’s victory in the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression and the victory in the World Anti-Fascist War.”

The complete title of the Victory Day holiday is known as “Chinese People’s Anti-Japanese War and the World Anti-Fascist War Victory Commemoration Day”, which is exactly how the World War Two is called in China.

On September 2, 1945, Japan put its signature for its formal surrender, with China deciding to commemorate the day, a day post the date.

There is a huge parade on the day usually every time of this year, with the Military March being at the center of it, however, due to the Corona Virus crisis this year, there are no details of a march this time around.
