Go back to Remember the Past

Remember the Past

On her last work, "The Rape of Nanking":

"My greatest hope is that this book will inspire other authors and
historians to investigate the stories of the Nanking survivors before
the last of the voices from the past, dwindling in number every year,
are extinguished forever. Possibly even more important, I hope it
will stir the conscience of Japan to accept responsibility for this
This book was written with George Santayana's immortal warning
in mind: 'Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to
repeat it.'"
