Description: Until the recent emergence of John Rabe's diaries, few people knew about the unassuming hero who has been called the Oskar Schindler of China. In November 1937, as Japanese troops overran the Chinese capital of Nanking and began a campaign of torture, rape, and murder against the inhabitants, one man -- a German who had lived in China for thirty years and who was a loyal (and naive) follower of Adolph Hitler -- put himself at risk and in doing so saved the lives of 200,000 poor Chinese, 600 of whom he sheltered in his own home.

As foreign nationals and the wealthier Chinese residents fled to safety, Rabe stayed in Nanking to set up and oversee an international safety zone for noncombatants. The survival of the fragile safety zone depended largely upon Rabe's status as a German, and hence an official ally of the Japanese. But when, back in Germany in 1938, he wrote to Adolf Hitler detailing the atrocities he had witnessed, he was arrested by the Gestapo. The Good Man of Nanking is a crucial document in understanding one of World War II's most horrific incidents of genocide, one which the Japanese government has steadfastly refused to acknowledge. Illustrated with nearly sixty photographs, it is a moving and awe-inspiring record of one man's conscience, courage, and generosity in the face of appalling human brutality.
