Japanese scholar urges Abe to face Nanjing Massacre testimonies

Organized by Japan’s civil group “No More Nanjing Massacre”, a testimony meeting was held in Tokyo on Wednesday to mark the 78th anniversary of the massacre.

In 1937, Japanese troops captured Nanjing, the then capital of China, and murdered 300,000 civilians and unarmed combatants in one of the bloodiest, most barbaric campaigns known in history.

Kasahara Tokushi, a professor emeritus at Tsuru University, criticized Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s administration for trying to deny the massacre.

The professor said those, especially the politicians who deny the massacre should go to Nanjing first and listen to testimonies.
