Yoshio Shinozuka

Yoshio Shinozuka is a former Imperial Army soldier who served with a top secret Japanese biological warfare group called Unit 731 in World War Two. He was involved in conducting experiments and vivisections on Chinese captives near the northern Chinese city of Harbin. Shinozuka has given testimony on the activities of Unit 731 on behalf of 180 Chinese who are suing the Japanese government for compensation and an apology for deaths of family members they say were killed in experiments at the world's first biological warfare laboratory. "I was a member of Unit 731 and I have done what no human being should ever do," said Yoshio Shinozuka.
