The story is told from 3 perspectives: that of the Japanese soldiers who performed it; of the Chinese civilians who endured it; and finally of a group of Europeans and Americans who refused to abandon the city and were able to create a safety zone that saved almost 300,000 Chinese

La violación de Nanking : el holocausto olvidado de la Segunda Guerra Mundial by Iris Chang( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En diciembre de 1937 tuvo lugar una de las masacres más brutales que se recuerdan en tiempos de guerra. El ejército japonés entró en Nanking, entonces capital de China, y en pocas semanas no sólo saqueó e incendió la antigua ciudad indefensa, sino que sistemáticamente violó, torturó y asesinó a más de 300.000 civiles. Mediante entrevistas a supervivientes y documentos desclasificados en cuatro idiomas, Iris Chang, cuyos abuelos escaparon de la masacre, ha escrito la historia definitiva de este horrible episodio desde tres perspectivas diferentes: la de los soldados nipones, la de los civiles chinos y la de un grupo de europeos y norteamericanos que se negaron a abandonar la ciudad y lograron crear una pequeña zona de seguridad que salvó a casi 200.000 chinos.Sorprendentemente, esta atrocidad, una de las peores en la historia de la humanidad, sigue siendo negada por el Gobierno japonés. Pese a que el número total de muertos en Nanking supera el de varios países europeos enteros, e incluso el de las explosiones atómicas de Hiroshima y Nagasaki, la Guerra Fría condujo a reprimir toda discusión sobre el asunto. Para Chang, esta conspiración de silencio, que persiste hasta hoy, constituye una "segunda violación"

The rape of Nanking( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Documents the death and destruction that followed the 1937 Japanese occupation of China. So sickening was the spectacle that one Nazi representative in the city, a Schlindler-like businessman named John Rabe, was moved to save a quarter million Chinese. This presentation draws extensively on Rabe's 1,200 page diary for a unique perspective on this tragedy. Interviews with descendants of the victims and eyewitnesses to the crimes along with gruesome photos help separate fact from fiction, while scholars and historians reflect on the legacy of this shattering event
