Abstract

The Nanjing Massacre—or the Rape of Nanjing—was an episode of mass murder and mass rape  committed by Imperial Japanese troops against  the residents of Nanjing, then the capital of China, during the  Second Sino-Japanese War in 1937-38, which started the Second World War in Asia. The massacre occurred over a period of six weeks starting on December 13, 1937, the day the Japanese captured Nanjing. During this period, soldiers of the  Imperial Japanese Army murdered disarmed combatants and Chinese civilians numbering an estimated 40,000 to over 300,000 and perpetrated widespread rape and looting. This journal article (in English "Terror Genocide Nanjing 1937/38: The Systematic Character of Japanese Crimes") analyzes the massacre and demonstrates that the genocide and mass rape were systematic parts of the Japanese war strategy.
