Nanking (Chinese: 南京) is a 2007 documentary film about the 1937 Nanking Massacre in China. The film draws on letters and diaries from the era as well as archive footage and interviews with surviving victims and perpetrators of the massacre. Contemporary actors play the roles of the Western missionaries, professors, and businessmen who formed the Nanking Safety Zone to protect the city's civilians from Japanese forces. Particular attention is paid to John Rabe, a German businessman who organized the Nanking Safety Zone, Bob Wilson, a surgeon who remained in Nanking to care for legions of victims, and Minnie Vautrin, a missionary educator who rendered aid to thousands of Nanking's women.

The standard modern romanization, Hanyu Pinyin, renders the city's name as "Nanjing" (pronounced, with tones, as Nánjīng). The...,
