In December 1937, in the capital of China, one of the most brutal massacresin the long annals of wartime barbarity occurred. The Japanese armyswept into the ancient city of Nanking and within weeks not only looted andburned the defenseless city but systematically raped, tortured, and murderedmore than 300,000 Chinese civilians. Amazingly, the account of this atrocitywas denied by the Japanese government.
The Rape of Nanking tells the story from three perspectives: that of theJapanese soldiers who performed it, of the Chinese civilians who endured it,and finally of a group of Europeans and Americans who refused to abandonthe city and were able to create a safety zone that saved almost 300,000Chinese.
It was Iris Chang who discovered the diaries of the German leader of thisrescue effort, John Rabe, whom she called the Oskar Schindler of China,who worked tirelessly to save the innocent from slaughter.
