This documentary that was co-produced by China and the US didn’t apply the traditional mode of the massacre genre. It simply tells the stories witnessed by dozens of foreigners who stayed in Nanjing during the brutal massacre and protected local citizens in any possible ways. 

It is the first time that the Massacre has been shot in westerners’ perspectives. And it is also the first time that Nanking Massacre has been presented on the screen of western mainstream media. More audiences in the world will know what happened 80 years ago in Nanjing through this documentary. 

The one-hour docu-drama will premier December 13th, 2017 on History in the U.S., History Asia and simultaneously Jiangsu Satellite TV in China. 

Now we introduce you an excerpt from the Asian version of the documentary. 

A group of high schoolers in Nanjing paid a visit to the Memorial Hall of the Victims in Nanjing Massacre by Japanese Invaders. They wanted to know why thousands of innocent civilians were brutally killed and why countless women were raped. They wanted to know how all this happened and what youngsters in Japan thought about the massacre. Editor:Hiram
