HIST 1110 Professor Zhang Reading Report 11/12/2010 Raeshon Botkin-Greenlee “The Nanjing Massacre and its Historical Witnesses” When one thinks of a holocaust, the Nazi slaughter of the Jews often comes to mind. So it did come as I surprise for me to learn that another holocaust occurred during the same time in history. This holocaust took place in a country many do not even know played a major part in the Second World War. A place, many westerners like myself, would last expect. The other holocaust of World War II took place in China. According to website, www.1937NJ.org, “The Nanjing Massacre” occurred as a result of the Japanese invading China in 1937. After the Japanese invaded the Chinese capital of Nanjing, there were many terrible, war crimes. Many tactics of terror were employed by the Japanese including arson, lootings, raping/ gang raping as well as bombings. And when mass destruction was not enough, mass murder was used indiscriminately. During the Nanjing Massacre, over 300,000 innocent, unarmed, Chinese men, women and children were killed by the Japanese.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
