    Massacre of Christians commemorated

    2020-08

    During the Boxer Rebellion, mainly in North China (1900) , hundreds of Christians, both natives believers and foreign missionaries (including their families) were slaughtered. Many were killed in Taiyuan, capital of Shanxi Province. Some were killed by the Boxer rebels and some by government forces. Protestants and Catholics were brutally executed. The missionaries were seen as "foreign devils" who were polluting Chinese society. This tombs commemorate these Christian martyrs.
