3: http://community.nytimes.com/comments/www.nytimes.com/2010/04/05/world/asia/05poet.html?sort=newest&scp=1&sq=nanking&st=Search | misterdillon | This Response to the editorial article talks about how all the Japanese are being blamed for the massacre and genocide of the Chinese people in Nanking. The writer wants everyone to know that the Japanese were not the only ones committing this atrocity. Korea and some other Asian countries should be blamed as well not just japan, because they too marched under the flag of the rising sun. The Japanese soldiers are not the only ones that can be inhumane to other humans. | Bayonet practice | misterdillon

4: - Nanking's streets were littered with dead. Sometimes bodies had to be moved before automobiles could pass. - 400 men were seized. Tied in batches of fifty, they marched to the execution ground. - Many victims were bayoneted and some of the wounds were barbarously cruel. The Japanese soldiers had many ways of getting rid of prisoners like execution by sword and mass shootings. The only reason the Japanese were in Nanking was to take control of the city and strike fear into the hearts of the Chinese citizens. The soldiers wanted to make sure that the horrors of what they had done will stay with the Chinese people and remind them of what will happen if they tried to resist the power or the Rising Sun Empire. | Non-Fiction Articles | www.fordham.edu/halsall/mod/nanking.html

5: -During the first 6 weeks of the genocide, the total number of civilians and prisoners of war murdered was 200,000 -More then 155,000 bodies were burned -Over 80,000 women were raped. During this genocide the Japanese Imperial Army slaughtered people like animals. To cope with the corpses they resorted to burying some and burning the rest. They would use live victims for shooting targets, bayonet practice, and even killing competitions where the first soldier to kill 100 civilians would win. | http://www.gendercide.org/case_nanking.html

6: Quotable Quotes | "They were forced to dig huge trenches. When they finished their work, the men from the Gestapo began theirs. Without passion or haste, they shot their prisoners, who were forced to approach the trench one by one and offer their necks." (Wiesel, 6) This quote relates to Nanking because the Japanese soldiers had no regard for other peoples lives.

7: "For a second, he seemed to be looking at himself in the soup, looking for his ghostly reflection there. Then, for no apparent reason, he let out a terrible scream, a death rattle such as i had never before and, with open mouth, thrust his head towards the `still steaming liquid. We jumped at the sound of the shot, the man writhed a few seconds at the base of the cauldron, and then he was still." (Wiesel, 60) This quote even though the Germans knew that the prisoners were starving they would give them a false sense of hope by letting them get so close to food and then taking it away (shooting them in the back) | "Girls who had lagged behind that morning had been beaten by the SS men with the butts of their guns." (Wiesel, 184) This relates to the Nanking massacre because like the SS soldiers, the Japanese did not care if you were a girl. If you did something wrong, they will punish you. (Japanese preferred execution rather than beating.) | Executed Prisoner
