Rapes in Nanking – A Violence that Continues…

In December 1937, a Chinese city is occupied by Japan.

According to evidence presented at the Tokyo War Crimes Trails, Japanese soldiers rape at least 20,000 Chinese women during the occupation.

Old women over the age of 70 as well as girls under the age of 8 are sexually abused. Pregnant women are not spared.

Sometimes, Chinese men are forced to rape their own daughters, sons to rape their mothers, and brothers their sisters, while the rest of the family is made to watch.

Many of the women that are raped are subsequently killed with bayonets or bamboo through their privates.
