In this internationally renowned documentary, fourteen elderly veterans, from military police to doctors, break Japan’s unspoken code of silence to recount their brutal war crimes in China from 1931 to 1945. These witnesses initially reexamined their actions in Communist Chinese “re-education” camps. A harrowing, essential contribution to the study of Japan’s bitterly contested history of World War II.
