Escape from Harbin - July 1900 - Boxer Rebellion

In 1900, China's anti-foreigner Boxer Rebellion broke out and spread to Manchuria. The Russian Military moved in to quell the uprising. Following the rebellion, Russia was keen to keep hold of territory gained in Manchuria, but retreated in 1902 to keep peace with Japan. Harbin was like a Wild West frontier town, with the populace of 15, 000 Russians representing every strata of society. The 30, 000 Chinese remained segregated from the Russian, particularly following the Boxer Rebellion. This fascinating postcard shows the escape from Harbin of the Russian population of the city in July 1900, when 3000 women children and wounded left on two steamers with barges (seen here) bound for Khabarovsk. Date: 1900

China Martyrs - Missionaries killed during Boxer Rebellion

The "China Martyrs of 1900" is a term used by some Protestant Christians to refer to American and European missionaries and converts who were killed during the Boxer Rebellion, when attacks targeting Christians and foreigners took place in northern China. This appears to be a still from a film purporting to show such a massacre in 1899 (with Britihs troops charging to the rescue), however this is highly likely to be a later recreation of the events. Date: 1899
