The museum at Beijing's Marco Polo Bridge chronicles an era of anguish - before the final victory against Japanese invasion, Wang Kaihao reports.

The world marks the 70th anniversary of Japan's surrender to the Allies on Aug 15, but a Chinese museum has already attracted a daily stream of visitors who relive the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression (1937-45) through thousands of exhibits that arouse a country's collective memory.

For the occasion, a new permanent exhibition was launched in July in the Museum of the War of Chinese People's Resistance Against Japanese Aggression located by Lugouqiao (also known as Marco Polo Bridge) in the southwest outskirts of Beijing, where the war broke out.
