NOTE: Though there is substantial photographic evidence of the massacre, I am not going to post it directly on the site. If you want to see what things looked like on the ground, you can do so via websites like this one, curated by Yale University. However, I know not everybody wants to see those images, so I will not post those images directly.
On a related note, this episode contains graphic discussion of murder and rape. Listener discretion is advised.
This week, we look at the events of the Nanjing Massacre. Just what happened in China’s capital city in December, 1937?
