The amazing thing about Nanking:

Very many Nanking managed to take refuge at WHAT safe place?

At the Nanking Consulate of.....Nazi Germany..!!

“Germany is an Axis ally of Japan, maybe they have some sway with Japan...”

That is what the refugees were thinking, and they were correct. People will HATE it, but was there a German Schindler in CHINA..?

Yes, JOHN RABE, and he did repeatedly turn away the Japanese at the front gates, who were very frank in what was going to happen to the thousands of Chinese refugees inside.

He also established a Safe Zone:

He saved 200,000 innocent Chinese.
