  • Published 1 year ago

The slaughter of Nanking, commonly known as the Rape of Nanking, was an infamous genocidal war crime committed by the Japanese army in Nanjing, then capital of the Republic of China, after it fell to Imperial Japanese Army on December 13, 1937.

The duration of the slaughter is not clearly defined, although the violence lasted well into the next six weeks, until early February 1938.

During the occupation of Nanjing, the Japanese army committed numerous atrocities, including rape, looting, arson and the execution of prisoners of war and civilians.

Although the executions began under the pretext of eliminating Chinese soldiers disguised as civilians, it is stated that a large number of innocent men were intentionally identified as enemy combatants and executed-or simply killed outright-as the slaughter gathered momentum.

A large number of women and children were also killed, as rape and murder became more widespread.
