Summary
"Iris Chang's best-selling book The rape of Nanking forever changed the way we view the Second World War in Asia. It all began with a photo of a river choked with the bodies of hundreds of Chinese civilians that shook Iris to her core. Who were these people? Why had this happened and how could their story have been lost to history? She could not shake that image from her head. She could not forget what she had seen. A few short years later, Chang revealed this 'second Holocaust' to the world. But who was this woman that single-handedly swept away years of silence, secrecy and shame? Her mother, Ying-Ying, provides an enlightened and nuanced look at her daughter, from Iris' home-made childhood newspaper, to her early years as a journalist and later, as a promising young historian, her struggles with her son's autism and her tragic suicide"--Dust jacket
Summary
The mother of Iris Chang shares a portrait of her daughter that reveals the discoveries that inspired the writing of "The Rape of Nanking," describes her daughter's struggles with an autistic son and remembers her tragic suicide
