Summary
Known as "the rape of Nanking," the Japanese army in 1937 invaded China's capital city, unleashing a horrific onslaught of murder and rape. Incredibly, a small group of Westerners who stayed behind saved thousands. The film captures this controversial, fast-fading chapter in history through interviews with Chinese survivors, archival footage and compelling readings of the Westerners' letters and diaries
