    The Rape of Nanking

    Seventy-four years ago the capital City of Nanjing (Nanking) fell to Imperial Japanese Forces on December 13, 1937. Following the fall of the city, hundreds of thousands of Chinese civilians and disarmed soldiers were murdered and 20,000–80,000 men, women and children were raped by soldiers of the Imperial Japanese Army. The Japanese troops were under orders to take no prisoners.

    An old lady weeps during a memorial ceremony at the Memorial Hall of the Victims in the Nanjing Massacre by Japanese Invaders, in Nanjing, east China's Jiangsu Province, Dec. 13, 2011. Some 5,000 people gathered here Tuesday, marking the 74th anniversary of the Nanjing Massacre. Nanjing was occupied on Dec. 13, 1937, by Japanese troops who began a six-week massacre. Records show more than 300,000 Chinese unarmed soldiers and civilians were killed.

    My FIL had Rand McNally's Pictorial History of WWII. The pictures taken in Nanking by Japanese soldiers were horrific.

    Horrible event that not many people know about. It doesn't help that Japan tried to hide this for a long time.

    So did the US and China, the former b/c Japan became a Cold War ally of ours and the latter due to ambivalence.

    I inherited from my dad a copy of "Life's Picture History of WWII". The photos from Nanking were among the most disturbing photos I ever saw as a kid...

    Re: The Rape of Nanking

    Japan is still trying to "save face" over the 1937 Nanjing Massacre.

    China said on Monday it was extremely unhappy with Japan for lodging a protest over comments in Germany by Chinese President Xi Jinping, who recalled Japan's wartime invasion of the city of Nanjing and resulting massacre.

    Xi, in a speech in Berlin on Friday, said that such atrocities were "still fresh in our memory" and referred to the Chinese figure of 300,000 being killed.

    China consistently reminds its people of the 1937 Nanjing Massacre in which China says Japanese troops brutally killed 300,000 men, women and children in the then national capital.

    A post-war Allied tribunal put the death toll at 142,000, but some conservative Japanese politicians and scholars deny a massacre took place.

    Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said on Sunday that Japan did not deny that members of the Japanese military had been involved in killings and lootings in Nanjing but said there were various views about the number of victims.

    He said it was extremely regrettable for a Chinese leader to make remarks about Japan's history in a third country and that Japan had protested.

    Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said it was Japan that was in the wrong for daring to criticize Xi's remarks.

    "We are extremely dissatisfied with Japan's unjustified stance and strongly protest," Hong told a daily news briefing.

    Xi cited historical facts to ensure that people always remember what happened to ensure such tragedies can be avoided in the future, Hong added.

    "The crimes of the Japanese militarists in invading China, including the Nanjing Massacre are historical facts that cannot be denied," he said.

    "Recently, there has been a trend in Japan towards beautifying and denying the history of aggression, which has attracted high concern and caused alarm internationally amongst those who love peace."

    China's ties with Japan have long been poisoned by what Beijing sees as Tokyo's failure to atone for its occupation of parts of China before and during World War Two.

    During his speech, Xi also lauded German businessman John Rabe, a man lionized in China for his role in protecting Chinese from Japanese troops who rampaged through Nanjing, then known as Nanking.

    China has increasingly contrasted Germany and its public contrition for the Nazi regime to Japan, where repeated official apologies for wartime suffering are sometimes undercut by contradictory comments by conservative politicians.

    Deteriorating relations between Beijing and Tokyo have been fuelled by a row over a chain of disputed islands in the East China Sea. Ships from both countries frequently shadow each other around the islets, raising fears of a clash.

    Ties have further worsened since China's creation of an air defense identification zone over the East China Sea and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's visit to the controversial Yasukuni Shrine honoring war criminals among Japan's war dead.

    Re: The Rape of Nanking

    "Time heals all wounds," as the old folks pass away.

    Chinese President Xi Jinping signaled a positive message to Japan in an unusual way on Wednesday, the 80th anniversary of the 1937 Nanjing Incident of Chinese civilians and others by Japanese soldiers.

    At a ceremony to mark the anniversary in Nanjing, the president skipped a speech, apparently in consideration for the current momentum for improvement in Japan-China relations. It is rare for Xi not to deliver a speech when he attends a national event.

    No other members of the Communist Party of China’s top-level politburo standing committee made a speech either. Instead, former member Yu Zhengsheng stood on the podium.

    Yu stressed that the two countries should maintain a friendship toward the future while reflecting on history and contribute to peace for mankind.

    Yu noted that this year is the 45th since the normalization of diplomatic relations between Japan and China and that next year will be the 40th since the conclusion of the bilateral peace and friendship treaty.

    Xi aimed to “hold back harsh criticism of Japan” at the ceremony, an expert on Japanese affairs said.

    The Japanese government had been wary of Xi’s possible remarks at the anniversary event, after learning that he would attend the ceremony for the first time in three years.

    His decision not to deliver a speech “reflected the Xi leadership’s positive attitude toward improving ties with Japan,” a Japanese diplomatic source said.
