Rape of Nanking: The Forgotten Holocaust of World War II
by Iris Chang
This was an amazing book. I had a very hard time reading this book. After reading the first nine pages I put it down for about a week. I never thought how difficult it would be to get through this stuff. I am glad I read it. Mostly, so I can get an idea that there was more than one holocaust in the world. Also, it helped me realize that this can even happen again.
