What do i know about Japanese history? Only Hiroshima & Nagasaki i guess. Well, everybody knows it, right? But, today i do know sumtin' new, which i believe just a few people in the world know about it, not as much as Hiroshima & Nagasaki.

A few weeks ago, i watched a movie on the one of the Astro movie channel. I forgot the title of the movie but i remember the whole story; it's about a student who found out a top secret in her medical college.

As a medical student she studied about human bodies. But, things went wrong when she had to examined the body of someone she just knew. She wants to know badly who had donated the body but she didn't got any answer or information. She made an investigation by herself then.

The investigation lead her to something that we never think, at least for now. Her college actually undertake lethal human experimentation. The scientists perform invasive surgery on people, removing organs or doing some research that related to human body such as how the muscles work, & all these were conducted while the patience were alive.

I felt so terrible after watching the movie. However, it's only a movie, isn't it? It's impossible because it's against humanity, right?

But, today I watched a documentary, Kizu: The Untold Unit of 731. Oh God! It's real. All the thing in the movie is real!

Then, i try to find out more info..& this thing is really2 against humanity.

What is Unit 731?

Unit 731 was a covert biological and chemical warfare research and development unit of the Imperial Japanese Army that undertook lethal human experimentation during the Second Sino-Japanese War (1937–1945) and World War II. A special project code-named Maruta used human beings for experiments. The test subjects were selected to give a wide cross section of the population, and included common criminals, captured bandits and anti-Japanese partisans, political prisoners, and also people rounded up by the secret police for alleged "suspicious activities". They included infants, the elderly, and pregnant women.


* Prisoners of war were subjected to vivisection without anesthesia.
*Vivisections were performed on prisoners after infecting them with various diseases. Scientists performed invasive surgery on prisoners, removing organs to study the effects of disease on the human body. These were conducted while the patients were alive because it was feared that the decomposition process would affect the results. The infected and vivisected prisoners included men, women, children, and infants.
* Vivisections were also performed on pregnant women, sometimes impregnated by doctors, and the fetus removed.
* Prisoners had limbs amputated in order to study blood loss.
* Those limbs that were removed were sometimes re-attached to the opposite sides of the body.
* Some prisoners' limbs were frozen and amputated, while others had limbs frozen then thawed to study the effects of the resultant untreated gangrene and rotting.
* Some prisoners had their stomachs surgically removed and the esophagus reattached to the intestines.
* Parts of the brain, lungs, liver, etc. were removed from some prisoners.

Other experiments

Prisoners were subjected to other experiments such as:

* being hung upside down to see how long it would take for them to choke to death.
* having air injected into their arteries to determine the time until the onset of embolism.
* having horse urine injected into their kidneys.
* being deprived of food and water to determine the length of time until death.
* being placed into high-pressure chambers until death.
* being exposed to extreme temperatures and developing frostbite to determine how long humans could survive with such an affliction, and to determine the effects of rotting and gangrene on human flesh.
* having experiments performed upon prisoners to determine the relationship between temperature, burns, and human survival.
* being placed into centrifuges and spun until dead.
* having animal blood injected and the effects studied.
* being exposed to lethal doses of x-ray radiation.
* having various chemical weapons tested on prisoners inside gas chambers.
* being injected with sea water to determine if it could be a substitute for saline.
* being buried alive (victims included infants).
