In the Name of the Emperor | 1995
A documentary on the Rape of Nanjing which took place in 1937 when Japanese Imperial troops invaded Nanjing (aka Nanking) then the capital of China. Survivors of the massacre estimate that about 300,000 were killed and 20,000 women were raped and killed in the first six weeks of the Japanese occupation. Because of these rampant rapes and the alarming spread of veneral diseases among the soldiers, the Japanese government began the systematic operation of the now-infamous "comfort stations", forcing women to serve in military brothels. By the end of the war, an estimated 200,000 women, mostly Koreans, had been shipped as "war supplies" to serve as "comfort women" in Japanese military stations all across the occupied territories, from Manchuria to New Guinea.
