During WWII, Japan’s military developed and used numerous biological weapons in China, killing tens of thousands of Chinese civilians, including American POWs. But intriguingly none of the leaders was ever prosecuted in the ultimate Tokyo War Crimes Tribunal.
Paul Johnson, an award-winning broadcast journalist, explains why and documents how the U.S. exploited Japan’s biological weapons crimes. Paul has reported in the U.S. and Canada, Europe, Central America and Asia. Paul will give an introduction and conduct a Q&A via Skype.
