Museum Recalls Hero of 'The Rape of Nanjing'
A new museum has just opened in Nanjing, China, commemorating the actions of a German businessman who saved lives during the 1937 Japanese invasion of the city. Known as the "Rape of Nanjing," the Japanese are believed to have killed 300,000 Chinese during the invasion and occupation.
The house where John Rabe sheltered 600 Chinese civilians has been turned into a museum and international research center for peace and reconciliation.
