Book Description

The infamous Nanjing Massacre of 1937, in which the Japanese Imperial Army raped and slaughtered countless Chinese citizens on the eve of World War II, has been described in well-publicized books from various Chinese, Japanese and German perspectives. But this collection of first-hand testimony from the archives of the Yale Divinit; School Library may be the most powerful record of all. Here are eyewitness accounts by a remarkable group of nine men and one woman - dedicated, compassionate, well-educated, articulate, and devout missionaries who were ther on the scene, refusing to leave, and doing everything in their power to save the Chinese victims of this appalling atrocity.
