 To commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Marco Polo Bridge Incident of July 7, 1937, the China International Publishing Group (CIPG) donated a large number of books containing valuable historical records about the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression (1931-45) to institutions including the Museum of the War of Chinese People's Resistance Against Japanese Aggression during a ceremony in Beijing on Monday.

The donated books include a series of multi-language works published by CIPG's New World Press. Among them was Fang Dazeng: Disappearance and Reappearance, which covers the life story of Fang Dazeng, the first Chinese journalist to report on the Marco Polo Bridge Incident. Also included was pictorial Smoking Guns: A Collection of Incriminating Evidence on Japan's Aggression Against China and The Oriental Battlefield, a collection of first-hand accounts of the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression.

Zhang Haiou, editor-in-chief of New World Press, said she hoped the donations would help raise awareness about social responsibility.
