John Rabe was a prolific writer with a good sense of humour. In addition to his famous Nanjing Diaries, he wrote more than fifteen other books and longer essays. They include several volumes of family history (1913, 1927, 1931, 1935) and four volumes on his time in Beijing (1936). Many of his books contain photos and original drawings by himself but not all of his writings survived the war.
