An exhibition and presentation on Japan’s biological and chemical warfare program in China during the 1930s and 1940s will be presented on Wednesday, September 11, at the Warner Center.
The exhibit will be available from 10 AM-9:30 PM; the presentation will be held from 7-8:30 p.m.
On display all day will be 50 panels from the Museum of the War of Chinese People’s Resistance against Japanese Aggression, in Beijing, China.
In the evening, Li Zongyuan, Vice Curator of the Museum, will offer a presentation entitled “The Japanese Imperial Army’s Germ and Chemical Warfare in China: Guilt and Responsibility.”
Also speaking will be Daniel Barenblatt, author of “A Plague upon Humanity,” which details the human experiments on Chinese men, women, and children during Imperial Japan’s attempt to develop germ warfare. Barenblatt will talk about Unit 731, the world’s largest research center and factory of weapons of mass destruction; he will explain why its leaders were never prosecuted, and discuss the significance of this issue today in terms of world stability and peace.
The event is being co-sponsored by Brookdale's Center for WWII Studies and Conflict Resolution, Brookdale’s Asia Society, and the New Jersey Alliance for Learning and Preserving the History of World War II in Asia (NJ-ALPHA).
