Exploring Crimes of War through the Nanjing Atrocities

In this five-day online workshop, we will introduce you to content that will broaden your teaching of World War II beyond its usual European focus to include the Asia-Pacific theatre. 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.
