Not "Unit 731" or the "Nanking Massacre" but a postcard showing some of the victims of The Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, it is always a great feeling when you unearth another fake photo!...it helps prove that the "Japanese Nanking Massacre" never happened, and makes China a laughing stock!
Not the so called Nanking Massacre, but another postcard showing "Mounted bandit leaders who were killed in a battle at Tieling hinterland" Postcards such as this one were very popular and sold to Japanese soldiers in China as souvenirs. Later these images would have their captions cropped and the atrocities blamed on the Japanese army. China was a dangerous place, you had nationalists, communists, warlords, bandits, deserted militia roaming the countryside all trying to kill each other.
BIG FAKE!....Notice the brass button on the wooden butt of the executioner's rifle. It is a a brass unit identification disc used on British Lee Enfield rifles, definitely not used on the Japanese Arisaka rifle. What a pathetic piece of propaganda!....caught out again!...and to think that Japan was our most loyal and trusted friend in WW1....shame on the British!
Another vintage Japanese photograph album showing the same old familiar photo/postcards of Chinese committed atrocities. Images such as these were very popular, and sold to Japanese soldiers in China as souvenirs. Later, the same images would be cropped and captioned as the Japanese Nanking Massacre. China is still fighting a losing propaganda war with Japan.
