What the Japanese did in the Nanking Massacre

Numerous atrocities happened in and around Nanikins, and the victims were largely civilians. The Japanese soldiers invented and exercised inhumane and barbaric ways of killing. The brutalities included shooting, stabbing, cutting open the abdomen, excavating the heart, decapitation (beheading), drowning, burning, punching the body and the eyes with an awl, and even castration or punching through the vagina.

About 20,000 women were raped by the Japanese soldiers during the six weeks of the Nanking massacre, and this maybe one reason why the Naning massacre is also called the rape of the Nanking. The soldiers even raped girls less then ten years old, women over seventy years old, pregnant women, and nuns. Those who resisted were killed immediately.
