Abstract:

On December 13, 1937, Japanese troops overran Chinese forces and occupied the city of Nanking. This A & E Special unflinchingly documents the death and destruction that ensued as, over the following two months, more than 350,000 Chinese soldiers and civilians were murdered. So sickening was the spectacle that John Rabe, a Nazi representative in the city, was moved to save a quarter million Chinese. The Rape of Nanking draws extensively on Rabe's 1,200-page diary for a unique perspective on the events of that period, while interviews with descendants of the victims and eyewitnesses to the crimes - along with gruesome photos - testify to the grim facts of one of the most horrifying episodes of the 20th century.
