Nanjing Requiem by Ha Jin
Nanjing Requiem

Raymond Hunter, January 2, 2012

Ha Jin provides an articulate, moving account of the genocide committed against the Chinese people in the 1930's. It is told through the eyes of an American who remains in China, thinking her American citizenship will provide protection. The "protection" afforded her places her in the position of attempting to safeguard thousands of Chinese citizens who are fleeing the Japanese slaughter.
