Japan is ashamed of being the alliance of the Nazis

“I have been teaching all my life. I learned English in Tokyo, my teacher was a Navy officier during the war, and he is very tough. One thing is interesting here in Japan, that we don’t teach about the second world war. You could see from our teaching manuals. With the development of internet and easy access to information, everything is then getting out from under the carpet. Of course it’s all denials, Japan is ashamed of being the alliance of the Nazis. For example, here nobody knows that almost half a million Japanese had been captured in camps in Siberia in 1945, for almost 10 years in the gulags, in winter they suffered -60° with hunger, cold, and almost 100000 people died there. It’s far longer than the captivating of German prisoners of war.”
