On this broadcast- the last one for Marvels of China: Pathways to the Pacific Rim Show- we featured an encore interview with Dr. Ying Ying Chang, the mother of the late Iris Chang. Iris Chang was the author of The Rape of Nanking: The Forgotten Holocaust of World War II, her 1997 bestselling nonfiction book. It was 81 years ago this month when the Japanese Imperial Army marched into the city of Nanking in what would be six weeks of carnage resulting in the murder of 300,000 out of 600,000 civilians and soldiers in what was then China's capitol city. This became known as the Rape of Nanking. We featured our regular segments -the Confucius Moment, Treasures of China and Chinese Fun Facts. We also featured other news, including the signing into law by President Trump of the Chinese American World War II Veteran Congressional Gold Medal Act. With a grateful heart I, as host and producer of this show, wish to convey to all our listener across the USA, China and around the world my deepest thanks. What's next? Stay tuned! Asia Today with Jeffrey Bingham Mead is our successor show to this one. We'll be expanding our horizons across all of Eastern Asia and South East Asia and related communities in the USA and around the world. The new show airs on Saturdays starting 10:30 a.m. Eastern USA Time on 1490 WGCH Radio Greenwich, Connecticut and WGCH.com anywhere. We'll archive our broadcasts here on a separate channel on Podcasts.com. Xiexie!
