The Nanking Massacre or Nanjing Massacre, also known as the Rape of Nanking, was a mass murder and war rape that occurred during the six-week period following the Japanese capture of the city of Nanking (Nanjing), the former capital of the Republic of China, on December 13, 1937 during the Second Sino-Japanese War. During this period, hundreds of thousands of Chinese civilians and disarmed soldiers were murdered by soldiers of the Imperial Japanese Army.
This picture looks for all intents and purposes to show a very young German soldier machine-gunning a group of old ladies. That guess is based mostly on the smoke coming from the soldier's gun. In addition, noting the position of the person at far left with her head raised as if hit from behind, as well as the lady in the foreground with head bowed and foot positioned as if falling, I'd guess that there were other shooters outside of the frame.

Ghastly.

Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels, Geneva, September 1933 by ALFRED EISENSTAEDT. Even with a smile he seems so evil.
In Geneva September, 1933. Joseph Goebbels smiling. He smiles, but not at photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt. Goebbels was looking at someone to his left. . . . Suddenly he spotted photographer Eisenstaedt as he snapped a pic of Goebbels. Goebbels expression suddenly changed. Goebbels knew that photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt was a JEW so he then threw Eisenstaedt a look of pure hate right after this shot of him smiling.
Post-autopsy of Helga Goebbels age 12. Her parents, Joseph and Magda Goebbels, poisoned her and her five siblings as the Russians closed in on the Berlin Bunker where they were hiding with Adolf Hitler, Eva Braun, and a small collection of fanatically dedicated Nazis. Magda was unable to go through with poisoning her children herself, and had to be "helped" by others. After the deed was done, she and Joseph committed suicide and their bodies were burned in the courtyard of the bunker.

Not just Jewish victims... German victims Helga, 12, was the oldest of the Goebbels children, with Heidrun, only four, the youngest. Even at twelve, a child has no real understanding of war and the evils committed by human monsters (unless they are victims of that evil), even if those monsters are her parents. The autopsy showed signs that Helga struggled against biting into the cyanide capsule that killed her.

Hand grenades and other small arms and equipment can be seen piled up beyond the rifles. They seem quite pleased to have survived, and that it is all over.

Amicedo Farola, of Dulag, Leyte, is a Philippine guerrilla scout, operating with a reconnaissance squadron of the 24th Division.
