|02:16 am - Wow...just...wow...shouldn't have watched that nanjing massacre dvd before bedtime...|
After the little debate me and meitachi had on lj over the nanjing massacre (was it even a debate? we didn't really disagree on anything), I went on ebay (yes i know, bad me) and bought a dvd on the massacre (trust me i was surprised as hell that there's actually a DVD on it O_o) and it arrived today, so I watched it (using earphones, ow my ears) and just...wow...
Sometimes I really don't know what possess me to buy these kinds of dvd's, knowing that they're not gonna be all that pretty. But just...holy shit...to think that anyone...any human being can do things like that...wow...it's scary...
Current Mood: nauseated
Nanjing..reminds me of history this year.
Yeah, it was devestating, especially since it revealed how cruel people can be or in this case the Japanese I think *shudders*
did u also learn about the nanjing thing in school?? wow i'm finding ppl all over the place learning about this O_o how i come only found out this past summer??? and i _AM_ chinese O_O
Yup yup. For year 12, I studied the Chinese Revolution which was 1911-1976. So, naturally we learnt about that unfortuante thing in history.
There's a book, I think called the rape of Nanjing. The pictures are enough to scar you for a lifetime.
Chinese? Ohh, I'm Vietnamese. ^__-
oh yes I've heard of that book, is it good? I was thinking of buying it actually when I saw it at my local bookstore, but didn't have money with me at the time. If it's good I'll have to go pick it up sometime~
I was flicking through it, but I manage to read bits and pieces of it. It was interesting, try reading Wild Swans Daughters of China. I was actually going to Borders to get that but got side tracked. XD

Oh no. Oh God. I'm afraid to ask.
yeah, really not pretty, i started crying halfway through it. guh...they had film footage and pictures of the...stuff...and whoa..like seriously...whoa....hard to believe the japs are denying it happened when there's so much hardcore evidence, i mean maybe the chinese's estimate of 300 000 dead may be exaggerated, iunno, but from the photos alone u could see like...piles of dead bodies, so even if it's not 300 000, just the fact they killed what can be seen on the photos is digusting.
