I guess Germany is remembered than Japan. Honestly, I didn't know that kind of thing took place in Japan... very disturbing.ShawnD said:Mass killings are not as well remembered as you would like to think. Please read the following paragraph slowly. Read it twice if you need to.
The Japanese massacre of other Asian countries was just overwhelming. Upwards of 20 million people died. Japan is responsible for the largest mass rape in human history; over 700,000 women raped, 90% of them were killed afterwards (google for "jugun ianfu"). Japan's medical experiments on Chinese people dwarfed the ones done in the Nazi camps (google for "Shiro Ishii" or "unit 731"). People were dissected while they were still alive, without any kind of sedation. Japan was the only country in WW2 to use biological weapons on civilians; this included the bubonic plague, anthrax, and cholera. Japan was also the only country to use chemical weapons. Japan's PoW camps were much worse than Germany's camps. Germany's PoW camps had a death rate of less than 5%, whereas Japanese PoW camps had a death rate of 30% or higher.
In the end, which country was remembered more? Germany or Japan?
