Nanking Massacre

“Nanking” documentary is a powerful reminder of the tragic massacre and rape that war caused on innocent men, women and children. The 2007 film is also a strong testament to the bravery and conviction of some citizens driven to take action when confronted with war atrocities. The film tells the story of the 1937 Japanese army invasion of Nanking, China and murdered more than 200,000 and raped thousands of Chinese citizens, days before World War 2 started. This is one of humanity’s most horrible atrocities. To be able to safeguard Chinese people, a few good men and women of European together with American expatriates, businessmen, teachers and missionaries get together as a group to risk their own lives to save 250,000 lives.

Directed by Dan Sturman and Bill Guttentag, the film details the Nanking Massacre through reading from letters as well as journals that reveals the actions of John Rabe, a German business owner, Robert O. Wilson, the sole doctor left over to look after tons of wounded victims, and Minnie Vautrin, the teacher who amorously protects the lives and dignity of the women of Nanking through the entire wartime. The film also features survivors who reveal to their own testimonies, rare archival video of the incidents, and the accounts of Japanese soldiers whom took part in the siege.

    Japan was a very powerful country before the world war two. And now if you think of a war between japan and china it will be like a salvage for japan. This documentary teaches us how time shifts the power and almost everything else. This is a great for history students.

    China has a rich tradition of sacrifice. It is exactly the reason why China is such a great nation now. Japan gave them this kind of torture in the old days, and upon surviving this, China has grown to be even more powerful than Japan now. It has made China a great nation now.

    OMG! China, being a large and powerful empire has experience this kind of horror from Japan? Never knew about that. You are right Lynda those heroes from that event should get the proper honorary recognition. Did you know that Philippines has also experience horrible events triggered by Japanese occupation?

    My goodness! I never knew that the Chinese has this horrible history with the Japanese. I could not help but hate those Japanese who did those horrifying action against the victims even if those were already things of the past. But surely I could not help but admire the heroes here who risked their own lives just to protect 250,000 lives. These Europeans and American expatriates, businessmen, teachers and missionaries who grouped together to save lives deserved to be honored.
