What is Japan’s Unit 731?
Led by microbiologist Shiro Ishii, Unit 731 was a biological warfare research and development unit that operated during the Second Sino-Japanese War and World War II.
It’s been reported that at least 12,000 people died due to Unit’s 731 inhumane experiments.
Prisoners of war were dissected alive — with no anesthesia. That is, after they have infected them with several diseases.
Scientists removed organs to observe the effects of the disease on the body. Living subjects were also used as lab rats for germ-releasing grenades, biochemical weapons, and bombs.
