Japan's Past Crimes against Humanity

Date: 07/07/2020 | Source: Naenara (En) | Read original version at source

The truth behind crimes committed by Japan in the past is being disclosed one after another.

Tokyo Shimbun has recently reported that an official document on a germ warfare unit called the "anti-epidemic water-supply unit of the Kwantung Army" in the past has been found.

The document specifies that the "anti-epidemic water-supply unit of the Kwantung Army" consisted of Unit 731 and five branches and that the Dalian branch was involved mainly in the research and production of germs till the end of the war. It also contains a table detailing investigation into four other branches and a sketch map showing all the branch units' activities before and after the defeat in the war.

A professor emeritus of Shiga University of Medicine said that the document made by the Japanese government after the war revealed the structure of the "anti-epidemic water-supply unit of the Kwantung Army", posts of the members of the branches and their activities before and after the defeat in the war. Noting that this proved for the first time the fact that the branch units also produced germs, the professor added that it is of great significance in verifying history.

The declassified data serve as a strong evidence of the thrice-cursed crimes committed by Japan against humanity in the past.

As already known, Unit 731 is ill-famed across the world as a homicide unit of the Japanese imperialists that directly spearheaded and committed the shuddering crimes of biochemical warfare.

The murderers of the unit stationed in Harbin City of Heilongjiang Province, China, were provided with hundreds of people as guinea-pigs from the military police every year, killing lots of people from Korea, China and Russia through various kinds of brutal methods such as vivisection, freezing and injection of germs.

Unit 731 was not the only unit that committed the hideous crimes peculiar to the barbarians in human skin.

In the whole period of their continental aggression, the Japanese imperialists organized secret germ warfare units such as Unit 100, Unit 516 and Unit Nami 8604 and went hell-bent on the tests of toxic gas and all kinds of germ weapons. And when their country was on the brink of defeat in the war, they made desperate efforts to sweep their crimes under the carpet.

However, the evidence of the hideous crimes of Japan is being discovered in succession still today after the lapse of more than half a century, and films and books have been made and written to tell the world about its crimes.

Nonetheless, the Japanese reactionaries are justifying their hideous crimes against the Asian people and the Korean people, in particular, without an iota of guilty conscience.

They are resorting to vicious retaliation on the victims of forced labour, far from making an apology and reparation for them. Worse still, they are insulting the victims of state-backing sexual slavery as “volunteers for moneymaking”.

They even built an exhibition hall that totally denies the crimes against humanity committed by the Japanese imperialists, making mockery of the victims. Such moral inferiority and impudence peculiar to the island country are stunning the world community.

Reality shows that the evil look of the savage country that indulged in all kinds of crimes against humanity remains unchanged.

A mentally and morally corrupt country has no future.

Japan should be well aware that the first step for becoming an honourable member of the international community lies in honestly admitting its past crimes and thoroughly discharging its reparation duty as a defeated nation.
