Recent testimony from the surviving members of Unit 731 reveals that live human experimentations, such as vivisection without anesthesia, were performed on American and British prisoners as well. Roughly 5,000 people, including 1,203 independence fighters, died as test subjects for Unit 731. (Article in Korean, but click for the picture -- the man on the table is still alive.)


  1. "특히 731부대가 마취시술도 없이 일부 마루타를 살아있는 채로 해부했다는 전직부대원의 증언은 731부대의 생체실험이 고의적 살인행위에 가까웠다는 점을 입증하는 생생한 증거로서 주목을 받고 있다."

    Is there any particular reason why this reporter would say the act was "close to being intentional murder"?

    Or is it just one badly written sentence.

  2. It's an awkward sentence; the reporter probably wanted to say that what happened at Unit 731 was intentional murder, but held himself back for the sake of neutrality, such as it is.
