Unit 731 and the Horrific Experiments Carried out During World War II
The Japanese brutalised many for research purposes.
As the final months of World War II saw the liberation of hundreds of concentration camps, the true horror was unveiled. The Nazis would always be known for the inhumane acts they had subjected many to.
In Japan, many acts were carried out equally as inhumane and disgusting. These events, though, were not so well publicised, and few people learned the extent of their crimes until recently.
The Japanese army kidnapped girls to serve as their 'comfort women' and used human beings for medical experiments in a unit they labelled 731. Although biological and chemical weapons were not unheard of in warfare, what was unknown was the testing of weapons on human subjects.
