Nanking International Relief Committee

[ THE GOOD MAN OF NANKING : page 29, Nov. 23. 1937 ]
"Tea party given by Mr. Chang Chun, the former foreign minister and now chief secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. [...] The "main idea" is that all of us remaining Europeans and Americans are to gather each evening between eight and nine o'clock at the International Club, so that we can remain in contact with leading Chinese figures of their representatives."


[ THE GOOD MAN OF NANKING : page 192, Feb. 12. 1938 ]
"Shortly before the city was taken by the Japanese, two functionaries of the Chinese government sought and were given refuge in my house. They came equipped with bags full of money and on various occasions gave my servants tips that were far beyond reason.
Since Chiang Kai-shek had promised our committee a donation of 100,000 dollars in toto, of which we were able, with much difficulty, to collect 80,000, I demanded a written statement from these two gentlemen that they were in possession of no other moneys for the International Committee of the Nanking Safety Zone."

"Japanese authorities at Nanking took over the activities of the international relief committee. The organization, composed of American missionaries and German business men, was characterized by a Japanese spokesman as "really a semi official Chinese Government organ." It had been caring for 250,000 refugees.
The spokesman did not question the motives of the committee, but asserted that 1,500 Chinese soldiers had sought shelter in the committee's refugee zone after the fall of Nanking and that arms were found there.
The individual status of American and German members of the committee, the spokesman added , was not changed, and they were not requested to leave Nanking. However, for military reasons, he asserted, neither foreign nor Japanese civilians would be permitted to visit the captured Chinese capital."
