Nanjing Massacre Survivor Gets $200,000

Wednesday, August 23, 2006 Posted: 05:59 PM JST

A Chinese court has awarded a Nanjing Massacre survivor $200,000 in compensation, Associated Press reports today. Xia Shuqin, who was 8 years old at the time of the massacre by Japan's Imperial troops, sued Shudo Higashinakano and Toshio Matsumura. The two Japanese historians claimed in two books that historical accounts of the Nanjing Massacre were untrue.

The People's Daily Online has more positive, and representative, news about a Japanese historian. In Japanese professor makes research about Japan's war crimes, the newspaper shows a selection of photos of Makoto Ueda, a history professor of Tokyo-based Rikkyo University, doing research in China. Ueda made a research tour of war crimes committed by Japanese invading troops at Chongshan Village during World War II.

The now legendary Sir Ernest Mason Satow (1843-1929) was a member of the British legation in Tokyo for twenty-one years. This classic book is based on the author's detailed diary, personal encounters, and keen memory. In it, Satow records the history of the critical years of social and political upheaval that accompanied Japan's first encounters with the West around the time of the Meiji Restoration. Fascinating.
