Population of Nanking

[ THE GOOD MAN OF NANKING : November 28, page 39 ]
"Wang Kopang, the chief of police, has repeatedly declared that 200,000 Chinese are still living in the city."

[ THE GOOD MAN OF NANKING : December 10, page 58 ]
"We're anxiously awaiting an answer to our telegrams from the Japanese authorities and from Chiang Kai-shek. The fate of the city and 200,000 people are at risk."

[ December 17, 1937 ]
"In other words, on the 13th when your troops entered the city, we had nearly all the civilian population gathered in a Zone [...]."
"It is hard to see how starvation may be prevented amongst many of the 200,000 Chinese civilians [...]."

[ THE GOOD MAN OF NANKING : December 25, page 96 ]
"The Japanese have decreed that every refugee must be registered. This has to be completed within the next ten days. No easy matter, what with 200,000 people."

[ January 14, 1938 ]
"We understand that you registered 160,000 people without including children under 10 years of age, and in some sections without including older women. Therefore, there are probably 250,000 to 300,000 civilians in the city."

[ THE GOOD MAN OF NANKING : January 17, page 135 ]
"Estimates of the total population of the Zone are now around 250,000. The increase of about 50,000 comes from the ruined parts of the city."

[ February 10, 1938 ]
"A population of 250,000 should have at least 2,000 tan of rice or 1,600 bags of rice per day."

[ THE GOOD MAN OF NANKING : December 6, page 52 ]
"Why didn't they force the well-off inhabitants, those 800,000 propertied citizens who fled, to stay? Why is it always the poorest people who must forfeit their lives?"

[ The New York Times : November 22, 1937 : JAPAN TO DEMAND ALL CHINA'S RIGHTS IN SHANGHAI AREA ]
"The capital, which had a population of more than 1,000,000 last July is now estimates to have only 200,000."

[ The New York Times : January 31, 1938 : NANKING DISORDER REPORTED WANING ]
"Cut off from newspapers, radio and all outside interests, living in a ruined city which in midsummer boasted a population of more than 1,000,000, fewer than 200,000 Chinese remain."
