Example text

In Shiro Ishii’s mind he was a patriotic servant of the Japanese state. ‘He remained a dedicated medical professional who held true to a vision of total military supremacy through the study of and experiments in microbiology,’9 writes Barenblatt. Ishii’s ‘vision’ was to take the lives of hundreds of thousands of innocent people over the coming decade as science was allowed to run riot without any legal or moral boundaries. The consequences for the peoples of Manchuria and China were catastrophic.

Thousands of men, women and children had been sacrificed to these secret and diabolical experiments. The Japanese had managed to develop many of the weapons they desired from these tests, and then used them on local villages and towns in China with extremely lethal effect. Hundreds of thousands of Chinese had been deliberately murdered by diseases which had been cynically introduced to the local environment by Unit 731 scientists, either through aerial sprays and special ceramic bombs, or through poisoning water sources and food.

In a sinister move, Ishii demanded that the army provide him with a complex big enough to have its own prison and where he could keep his human guinea pigs under carefully-controlled and monitored scientific standards. The new facility required good communications links with Harbin, but also it had to be far enough away from the main population so as not to arouse suspicion amongst it. The army suggested a small village called Beiyinhe (pronounced ‘Bay-yin-her’) located around eighty miles southeast of Harbin.
