Description
"Residence at no. 17 Lang Ya Road, Nanking which housed another group of refugees for whom we took responsibility. Mr. Magee and I took turns at standing guard at the end of the street to keep marauding Japanese soldiers from molesting the refugees after the fall of the city."
Ernest Forster, the photographer, was an American Episcopal missionary who stayed in Nanjing during the period of the Japanese occupation, 1937-1938.
