Chen, a Nanjing resident, was born on Sept 20, 1925. She was sent to a family living at No 40 Fuxi Street as a child bride when she was 12 years old.

When Japanese army invaded Nanjing in 1937, Chen hid in a hole in the ground near Xibei village of Jiangning area together with her mother-in-law. She shaved her head to avoid being raped by Japanese soldiers.

Chen’s elder brother Chen Xinglin was shot dead by Japanese soldiers during the massacre.
