The Rape of NankingStreaming Video - 2008
Over the course of six weeks in 1937-38, Imperial Japanese forces massacred hundreds of thousands of Chinese civilians and prisoners of war as the Empire of the Rising Sun turned China's capital, Nanking, into a veritable Hell on Earth. This program seeks both to expose and to understand that shocking outrage against humanity through the testimonies of the last surviving Japanese veterans and the recollections of Chinese eyewitnesses. Rarely seen newsreel and amateur footage, uncensored personal photos, and excerpts from diaries are interspersed throughout. No human rights video collection can be considered complete without an account of the atrocity that history has labeled the Rape of Nanking. Some content may be objectionable.
