The Good Man of Nanking: The Diaries of John Rabe is a collection of the personal journals of John Rabe, a German businessman who lived in Nanjing at the time of the Nanking Massacre in 1937–1938.

The Good Man of Nanking: The Diaries of John Rabe is a collection of the personal journals of John Rabe, a German businessman who lived in Nanjing at the time of the Nanking Massacre in 1937–1938. The book contains the diaries that Rabe kept during the Nanking Massacre, writing from his personal experience and observation of the events that took place. It also excerpts Rabe's experience in immediate post-war Berlin, then occupied by Soviet troops.

On September 22, 1937, John Rabe picked up his pen with the same determination that the Japanese soldiers advancing on Nanking picked up their rifles, and began to record their terrible atrocities. The testament he produced will confound those cynical about altruism, as well as naysayers who deny the brutality - or even the occurrence - of the Rape of Nanking. Rabe was a Hamburg businessman posted to the city.

One man, a mild 55-year-old German named John Rabe who ran the local Siemens factory, refused on the grounds .

One man, a mild 55-year-old German named John Rabe who ran the local Siemens factory, refused on the grounds that it would show a bad example to his Chinese workers. Sending his wife and family to safety, he watched in horror as the Japanese began to wipe out the population. The main thrust is the occupation of Nanking, the sickening, sadistic, slaughter carried out by the Japanese and the Herculean efforts of German and American civilians (and one Dane) in protecting 200,000 civilians by creating a Safety Zone where refugees could take shelter and be fed and be protected from the invaders.

The Good Man of Nanking: The Diaries of John Rabe. 0349111413 (ISBN13: 9780349111414). I read half of the book the fall of 2009 when I focused on the Nanking massacre for all of my papers in my Writing II class. John Rabe may have been part of the Nazi Party, but he lived most of his life in China where he had a great hand in saving 250,000-300,000 Chinese lives. There is no denying that John Rabe was an incredibly brave fellow; standing in the face of oppression and potential violence to protect others.

The Good German of Nanking The Diaries of John Rabe

I picked this book up as a followup to watching the film "John Rabe," which I also reviewed. Others who reviewed that movie gave an unfavorable review at times because there were some details that were inaccurate. Upon reading the book, which is a compilation of Rabe's diary entries, plus documents, I concluded that the "inaccurate details" in the movie were insignificant, simply poetic license by the filmaker.

Having said that, this book is one of the best published diaries available. The main thrust is the occupation of Nanking, the sickening, sadistic, slaughter carried out by the Japanese and the Herculean efforts of German and American civilians (and one Dane) in protecting 200,000 civilians by creating a Safety Zone where refugees could take shelter and be fed and be protected from the invaders. Rabe was universally acknowledged to be the main pillar of strength throughout the ordeal. The problem that the Americans and Germans had was that they, too, were defenseless.

The Japanese have, in modern times, simply embraced denial as to what occurred, not only in Nanking, but all of China, and all through the Pacific in spite of the wealth of evidence (which they themselves provided). They are not alone in this response. The Turks use denial about the genocide that they carried out against the Armenians (and expect the world to go along). The Serbs use denial about their ethnic cleansing in Bosnia. The Israelis use denial about their atrocities against the Palestinians. The Spaniards, for centuries (not so much now) employed denial about their own atrocities against the Indians in South America (they called it "the black legend" even though their actions were thoroughly, and amply, documented by the priest Bartolome de las Casas). Only the Germans have been the exception.

That Rabe was never awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace and that, after WWII, both he and his wife nearly starved to death because he wasn't officially "denazified" for a long time just goes to show that there is no justice in the world.

My friend lived under this in China. It's just what he said the people endured.
But the good German sets out to tell you a day to day accounting of what was
said and what was done. Many tricky politics to wade through for him. Very
interesting. And "no good deed goes unpunished"

This is the story of an ordinary man, trying to do what is right and good for others despite the horiffic conditions he has to endure also.
