A massacre of horrific proportions took place beginning on 13 December 1937 when the Japanese army overthrew the ancient city of Nanking, China. Japanese soldiers then proceeded to rape, torture, and murder an estimated 200,000-300,000 Chinese civilians. Thousands more would likely have been slaughtered if European and American civilians working in Nanking had not created a “Safety Zone” where survivors could take shelter.
