    Exploring Crimes of War through the Nanjing Atrocities

Through the lens of an overlooked moment in history — the 1937 Nanjing Massacre when the Japanese Imperial Army brutally raped, tortured, and murdered thousands of Chinese men, women, and children — we will discuss universal questions relating to war crimes and human behavior in times of crisis, and explore post-war legal efforts to hold individuals and nations accountable.
