AMERICAN HISTORY

Japanese World War II Atrocities on U.S. Airmen

April 7, 2015 – A new exhibition at a Japanese university acknowledges that its medical staff and students performed experiments on eight captured American airmen during World War II, even while the POWs were still alive.  All the men died as a result.  Professors at Kyushu University had voted to break the school’s 70-year silence on the matter.

The U.S. documented the atrocities at the war crimes tribunal convened after the war, and all 23 medical and university personnel charged were found guilty.
