IS THE RAPE OF NANKING A BOOK BASED ON FACTS?
China has been rapidly gaining strength in recent years and is about to establish its status as a hegemony. At the same time, the Chinese government is taking the Nanking Massacre up to a whole new level in the international society. In June 2014, the Chinese government filed an application with UNESCO to register the history materials regarding the Nanking Massacre and the comfort women as “Memories of the World.”
The Rape of Nanking, which came out in 1997, is a book that greatly contributed to creating this trend. Due to the book, the term “Nanking Massacre” has recently resurfaced and spread rapidly throughout the world, starting with the United States.
However, The Rape of Nanking has been brought up and argued by many experts as a ludicrous book, from the time it was published. The photos used in the book as records of cruel acts by the Japanese army are all photos that have been taken from elsewhere, completely irrelevant to the Japanese soldiers and Nanking.
In addition, according to the historical sources available at the time, the population of Nanking was roughly 200,000 people. Some people say that the population increased to roughly 250,000 people, thanks to the restoration of order by the Japanese army, one month after the fall of Nanking.
Furthermore, even though Chiang Kai-shek, the supreme leader at that time, made a claim to the League of Nations that the Japanese army wrongfully bombarded and destroyed homes of civilians during the attack on Nanking, he had not filed a single claim regarding the Nanking Massacre.
Despite all the debate going on about this, there are plenty of people who believe in the content of the book without any doubt, just as it is written. It is quite difficult to determine the authenticity of the Nanking Massacre, which is a story of something that is said to have happened almost 80 years ago, because there are two sides to this: what the Japanese are saying, and the ulterior motives of China, America and the victor nations.
In order to provide a powerful material in identifying this issue, we have published The Secret Behind “The Rape of Nanking,” a book revealing Chang’s current state, the strong possibility of a conspiracy behind The Rape of Nanking and even the truth about her death. This was done by a method unheard of: summoning the spirit of Iris Chang from the spirit world.
Regardless of whether or not you believe in a spiritual message phenomenon, as an individual human being, you cannot remain unmoved by her tears of apology and the truth in her plea, both coming from the bottom of her heart. And you will probably ask yourself, “What is the truth?”
