The Undaunted Women of Nanking: Episode 5
This week on Blanket Fort Radio Theater's production of the podcast "The Undaunted Women of Nanking," the days following the fall of Nanking see the the city become a shell of its former self. Japanese soldiers enter the safety zone and conduct a thorough search of Ginling College campus under the pretext of searching for Chinese army deserters. Despite the best efforts of Minnie Vautrin and Tsen Shui-fang, the soldiers take food, money, and clothing from the refugees, and abduct several young women.
