Nanjing Massacre

Written by by Honda Katsuichi , who worked for Asahi Shimbun. Among all the horrors described in that book, one relatively serene incident described in this book is still vivid in my mind.

When Japan attacked China. There were some peace loving people – something like Chinese Japanese Friendship Society.

They were meeting in a wooden hut, remember China was poor. Japanese soldiers came. And they set fire to the hut.Some Chinese tried to escape by leaving the hut. Japanese soldiers shot them dead. No survivors. Does not it remind one of Jallianwala Bagh incident? I visited it 5 years ago.
