Ordinance on special training for young Koreans is one of the evil laws fabricated by the Japanese imperialists when our country was under the military occupation and rule of Japan.

As the aggression war escalated, Japan fabricated and published numerous evil laws such as “National Mobilization Act” and “National Draft Ordinance” under the pretext of dealing with the depletion of human resources, and it forcibly took many young and middle-aged Koreans to battlefields and lethal working grounds.

Not content with this, Japan fabricated the ordinance on special training for young Koreans under governor-general order No.33 on October 1, 1942. And it set up camps for special training of young Koreans in primary schools and buildings attached to them.

According to the directive of the government-general, a military conscription list was written. And the people on this list were forced to take an exam. Punishment, like detention and fine, was imposed upon disobedient ones.

Due to the atrocities of Japan, as many as 103,600-odd people were forcibly admitted to about 2,700 camps nationwide at the end of April 1943.

The young Koreans who were taken to the camps by force to receive the Japanese militaristic education and tough military training ended up being conscripted and died violent deaths as cannon fodder of the Japanese imperialists.

The Japanese imperialists’ sinister motive for taking numerous young Koreans to the aggressive battlefields was not only to fill the gap in the number of soldiers but also to utterly exterminate the Korean nation itself by driving the Korean men to the jaws of death.

The forced drafting, abduction and mass killing committed at state level by the Japanese imperialists during the period of military occupation and colonial rule were the medieval “slave hunting” beyond human imagination in terms of their ways and means. They were also the most brutal and extraordinary crimes against humanity to annihilate the whole nation.

Japan can by no means shirk its legal responsibility and moral obligation for the past crimes committed against Korean nation.
