Nanjing Massacre in 1937

This is the national tragic event in Chinese modern history. All the people in China remember it in soul. In 1937, during the Japanese invasion of China, Japanese soldiers slaughtered many thousands of Chinese civilians in the city of Nanjing. The massacre began with prisoners or suspected soldiers, and then extended to those unambiguously civilian, including women, children, and old men. According to evidence presented at the Tokyo War Crimes Trials, Japanese soldiers raped at least 20,000 Chinese women, many of whom were murdered afterwards.

Iris Chang, the author of the acclaimed The Rape of Nanking, puts the death toll at 300,000. Japanese historian Hata Ikuhito puts the figure at 40,000. The truth is probably somewhere in between. The local war crimes trials held in Nanjing immediately after the war estimated that 190,000 were killed. All in all, this inhuman nightmare from Japan leaves Chinese people and the younger generations the incurable hurt. More than 300,000 people killed under the inhuman invasion and mistreatment of brute from Japan. More information concerned, please look through:
