Memorial honors Dane who saved thousands

一座雕像向那位救人无数的丹麦人致敬

Bernhard Arp Sindberg might belittle known in his home country ofDenmark, but in China, the Aarhusnative is revered for hishumanitarian efforts in saving thelives of tens of thousands ofChinese civilians during the NanjingMassacre of 1937-38.

贝恩哈尔·阿尔普·辛德贝格在他的祖国丹麦也许并不出名。但在中国,这位奥胡斯人却因为他的人道主义贡献而受到尊敬——在 1937 年至 1938 年的南京大屠杀期间,他救下了数以万计的中国老百姓。

During the horrific NanjingMassacre, an estimated 300,000Chinese people were tortured, maimed, raped and murdered by theoccupying Japanese troops in thesix weeks starting on Dec 13, 1937. Sindberg, who was 26 at the time, succeeded in saving thousands ofpeople by protecting them in acement factory in the city, where heworked as a guard.

在骇人的南京大屠杀期间,自 1937 年 12 月 13 日起的六个星期之内,大约有 30 万中国人被占领南京的日本军队折磨、残害、强奸及杀戮。那时辛德贝格 26 岁,他在南京一家水泥厂里担任警卫。辛德贝格将难民保护在工厂里,以此成功地拯救了成千上万的人。

In a gesture to commemorate hisheroism, a 3-meter bronze statue ofSindberg was unveiled by DanishQueen Margrethe II on Saturday inAarhus, Denmark.

周六,在丹麦的奥胡斯,为了对辛德贝格的英勇表示纪念,一座 3 米高的辛德贝格铜像由丹麦女王玛格丽特二世揭幕。

It is a gift to Aarhus from the city ofNanjing, which wanted to honorSindberg, who has been called theDanish Schindler.

这座铜像是南京市赠送给奥胡斯市的礼物,意在致敬辛德贝格。他被称作“丹麦的辛德勒”。

Sindberg, together with KarlGuenther, a German engineer whoalso worked at the cement factory, decided to open the factory gates tothe people of Nanjing.

卡尔·京特是一名在同一家水泥厂工作的德国工程师,辛德贝格和他一道决定,为南京人民打开工厂大门。

Sindberg and Guenther set up amakeshift hospital for the Chineserefugees, and repeatedly risked theirlives driving into the occupied city tocollect food, medicine and suppliesfrom the Red Cross.

辛德贝格和京特为中国难民搭建了临时医院,并多次冒着生命危险开车进入被占领的城区向红十字会领取食物、药物和(其它)补给物资。

It is estimated that Sindberg savedtens of thousands of people duringthe massacre, which has beencalled "the forgotten Holocaust".

据估计,在这场有着“被遗忘的浩劫”之称的南京大屠杀中,辛德贝格拯救了成千上万的百姓。
