A Glimpse of Reconciliation -
Confession of a Unit 731 Soldier &
Photo Exhibition on Japan's Germ Warfare in WWII

A group of Japanese lawyers together with former members of Japan's Unit 731 germ warfare squad will be in North America, witnessing to the historical facts of Japan's germ warfare and the use of living human beings for bio-bacteriological experimentation during WWII. The group believes that the Japanese government is legally and morally responsible for these war crimes under international law. They will be touring Toronto, New York, Washington DC, Vancouver and San Francisco. Their efforts can counteract damages caused by deniers of Japan's wartime atrocities. They hope to rebuild a true friendship between the people of Japan and those of the victimized countries.
