Iris Chang and her Unfinished Dream

Event detail
 

At the age of 26, Iris Chang set out to discover the long-buried truth of the events leading up to and during the Rape of Nanking, a six-week period in World War II during which the Japanese Imperial Army captured the old Chinese capital and sought to establish control of the city. Iris had heard stories of the mass atrocities, but little was documented in terms of actual history. She traveled to China, to the site of the Nanjing Massacre, to investigate for herself. The result of her efforts became a global best-seller, The Rape of Nanking: The Forgotten Holocaust of World War II.

At the six-year anniversary of Iris Chang’s death, the San Francisco Public Library and the Rape of Nanking Redress Coalition invite the public to learn about this young woman’s life and examine the moral courage it takes for one person to seek out the truth.
