I watched a fantastic documentary this week on the Rape of Nanking, which is the story of the Japanese sacking of the capital of China in 1937 and the subsequent months of torture, rape, and murder perpetuated by the Japanese soldiers on the civilians that were too poor to leave town. Nanking is a very moving work; it consists of some amazing footage combined with a dramatic retelling (via the reading of journals and letters by actors, as well as interviews with surviving victims and Japanese soldiers) of the story of how a handful of Westerners saved hundreds of thousands of lives amidst horrible atrocities. I highly recommend it!
