Summary
This program explores the legacy of Unit 731, a research division of the Japanese Imperial Army that conducted human experimentation on Chinese civilians during World War II. Traveling to some of China's "rotten leg villages," the video features eloquent testimony from elderly survivors who still tend deeply ulcerated, unhealed wounds resulting from Unit 731's biological attacks. The documentary highlights efforts to bring the truth about Unit 731 to light, with activists accusing modern-day Japan of downplaying or denying the episode.
