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.

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. 0316847682 (ISBN13: 9780316847681). 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. The Diaries of John Rabe, a Nazi, who built an safety zone in Nanking to try and save the Chinese people from being killed by the Japanese Army. Nanking's population in 1937 was around . million. It's revealed that Nanking had actually gone through an earlier massacre.

Rabe was a Hamburg businessman posted to the city. When Japanese forces advanced on Nanking, he organized a sprawling International Safety Zone, "that eventually saved over 250,000 lives even as reportedly an equal number of people lost theirs". His diary details his activities and what he witnessed during the several weeks of murder, rape and pillage that started in mid-December 1937. Even though he was usually good-humored, Rabe demonstrated a capacity for righteous rage when encountering a soldier about to rape. This chubby, bow-tied businessman hollered at, and then shoved away the armed soldier, who then ran off.

Talk about The Good German of Nanking

I came to this book after reading Iris Chang’s The Rape of Nanking. While in Chang’s book we get a glimpse of Rabe and an outsiders perspective at the events that took place between 1937 and 1938, in this book, we get to see the events as they unfold and from the perspective of someone who was actually there. It is a tragic and hard book to read, but it is very informative, and it is even filled with random clippings from other people who were there during the massacre. John’s diaries also continue after the events that happened in Nanking and continues through Russia’s invasion of Germany. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars because it is well written and it is informative. Warning for those who do not know much about the massacre, it can get pretty disturbing, and there are pictures of various war crimes and corpses.

Arrived on schedule, book as described. John Rabe, having lived and worked as a Siemens representative in China for many years by the time Japan occupied Nanking, was naive enough about the Nazis in his native land to believe that Hitler would exert diplomatic pressure on the Japanese to curb their atrocities. I found his first-hand account of events in Nanking to be utterly believable.

This is a great backgrounder, especially if you've read Iris Chang's Rape of Nanking. John Rabe was a significant thread throughout her book bc he lived every day of the occupation, and saved thousands of lives through his efforts. Like a lot of diaries, you sometimes get the humdrum, but the insights into this kind, determined man is worth those.
Kardana
A well done book that is painful to read. Even though Rabe and his fellow defenders of the safety zone come across as true humanitarians, with some curious foibles, the rest of world seems all too disinterested in the needless sacrifice of thousands and thousands of lives.
The. Book "Shanghai 1937" by Peter Harmsen does a good job of setting the stage for the disaster to befall Nanking.
Bele
Very interesting book that shows heroes aren't always a soldier. It really paints a clear picture at the destruction of Nanking and the pillaging against the local population.

Very much recommend it.
Jockahougu
Truly this is a remarkable man doing extraordinary things during the most horrendous of times and yet he never gave up his humanity or his sense of humor.

I knew the story and wanted to get some more details. This book did the job. One will also want to read 'The Rape of Nanking.'
By reading through this diary of a German national, a nazi party member, people should wonder where in the hell a so-called massacre of 300,000 Chinese people took place. It is a contemporary journal of the person who was responsible for the maintenance of the safety zone where most surviving Chinese citizens as well as deserters numbering more than 200,000 were staying during the battle of Nanking. It is definitely a book to read to comprehend one of the well-mentioned but little known incidence.
