The Rape of Nanking: The Forgotten Holocaust of World War II
“The Rape of Nanking: The Forgotten Holocaust of World War II” is a powerful and disturbing account of one of the darkest chapters in modern Chinese history. Written by Iris Chang, the book tells the story of the Japanese invasion of Nanking (now known as Nanjing) in 1937 and the subsequent massacre and rape of Chinese civilians by Japanese soldiers.
The book is based on extensive research, including interviews with survivors, diaries and journals of both Chinese and Japanese soldiers, and historical documents from both China and Japan. The author provides a detailed and graphic description of the atrocities committed by the Japanese soldiers, including the mass murder of thousands of Chinese civilians, the rape of women and girls, and the torture and killing of prisoners of war.
The book is well-written and engaging, and the author does an excellent job of conveying the horror and brutality of the events in Nanking. She also explores the political and cultural context that led to the massacre, including the militarism and nationalism of the Japanese government and the political and economic instability of China at the time.
While some historians have criticized the book for being too focused on the Japanese atrocities and not providing enough context or analysis of the wider political and social issues, overall “The Rape of Nanking” is a powerful and important book that sheds light on a dark chapter in human history. It is a must-read for anyone interested in the history of China and Japan, and in the broader issues of war, violence, and human rights.
