This movie adapted from titled "Nanking". the original movie was first released on February 20th (1938) in Japan.

Iris Chang says that 300,000 people were massacred in Nanking. There is a trick in her rhetoric. She says that Nanking had 250,000 refugees in the Safety Zone, and about the same outside the Safety Zone, making a total of approximately 600,000 people altogether.
Five days before the fall of Nanking, Commander-in-chief of the Nanking Defense Force, Tang Shengzhi issued an important order to all non-combatants : Everyone had to go to the Safety Zone and remain there. To go outside the zone, it became necessary to carry special permits. As a result, all the remaining residents of Nanking and refugees from the outskirts were within the Safety Zone before the arrival of the Japanese army. The Safety Zone became absolutely packed with 200,000 people. This is clearly recorded in The Documents of the Nanking Safety Zone, written by Westerners of that time.
Meanwhile, the non-Safety Zone areas became practically deserted until the end of January 1938, or the end of the 6th week of the Japanese occupation, according to the book What War Means, edited in 1938 by correspondent and Chinese army intelligence advisor Harold Timperley. So that is how it was in Nanking during the crucial 6-week period, when Iris Chang says mass carnage occurred.
What about areas outside the city walls?
Chinese soldiers outside had fled. Residents outside had taken refuge in the Safety Zone. The outlying areas were also deserted.
In addition, the gates to the city were heavily guarded, and no one was allowed to pass freely until the end of January, 1938. John Rabe notes this in his diary. So that means there was no significant inflow or outflow of people.
I would like you to realize that during the first six-weeks of the Japanese occupation, the city of Nanking was empty of Chinese, except for the very crowded Safety Zone. Numerous records and testimonies prove it. Despite Iris Chang's explanation, the population of Nanking then was equal to the population of the Safety Zone.

This is the over-all picture, when, after the fourth week of the Japanese occupation, an increase in the population to 250,000 is recorded.
One may question the exact accuracy of that number. That is not important. What is remarkable is that the Nanking International Committee observed not a decrease, but an increase of some tens of thousands of people. The increase in population is strongly suggestive of the fact that there was no massacre.
