Japan’s secret Unit 731 – where biological warfare was conceived | RT Documentary
The terrible crimes of Japan’s secret Unit 731 make anyone’s blood run cold.
Thousands of people were used as test subjects for the development of biological weapons.
The subjects were injected with cholera, typhoid, anthrax, bubonic plague, to be later dissected alive.
The unit’s ideologist Shiro Ishii and most of his associates were never punished.
They became practising physicians or scientists.
