    Iris Chang: The Rape Of Nanking

    2007     Documentary     Canada

    IRIS CHANG: The Rape of Nanking is a feature-length documentary film about a young woman's journey to bring one of the darkest chapters of history to light.

    In July 1937 the Japanese Imperial Army, which already controlled a large section of northeastern China, launched an undeclared war against the Republic of China. Five months later, on December 13, its troops entered the capital city of Nanking and began raping and murdering its citizens in an orgy of violence that has few parallels in modern history.

    Tens of thousands of Chinese prisoners-of-war were machine gunned en masse. An estimated 20,000 women were raped. Countless defenseless civilians; men, women and children were killed on the streets or in their homes. A British reporter who was on the scene compared the Japanese troops to Attila and the Huns. Writer George Will described the mass slaughter, which became known as "The Rape of Nanking" as "perhaps the most appalling single episode of barbarism in a century replete with horror."
