Part Three: Nanking: Evil Unleashed
Almost all people have this potential for evil, which would be unleashed only under certain dangerous social circumstances.
—Iris Chang, The Rape of Nanking
It is not until we tour the city that we learn the extent of destruction. We come across corpses every 100 to 200 yards. The bodies of civilians that I examined had bullet holes in their backs. These people had presumably been fleeing and were shot from behind.
—John Rabe, diary entry, 13 December 1937
