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.show more
