Does anyone know of sites I can check out please

Comment on Massacre and Atrocities in Hong Kong during WWII by Anne Carter http://www.dontow.com/2007/04/massacre-and-atrocities-in-hong-kong-during-wwii/#comment-1069219 Sat, 12 May 2018 06:11:54 +0000 http://dontow.com/wordpress/?p=213#comment-1069219 I was eight when I heard my mother crying one night. I found out she had just heard that her sister had been killed in Hong Kong. She never mentioned her sister to me after that. When I was old enough to buy books and then later to travel to various places like Hong Kong, I started researching and found out as much as I could.I still have two books”The Fall of Hong Kong” 1960 and written by Tim Carew and “The Lasting Honour The Fall of Hong Kong 1941”. written by Oliver Lindsay 1978. These books are worth finding if they are still available. I think a lot of questions could be answered. One, What happened to Dr. Black? He is buried in a mass grave with my aunt “Jimmie” Begg or Eileen Margaret Begg. Her husband was floating in the ocean when she was murdered. He survived the butchering and re-married after the war – someone he met in the camp. My family never contacted him again.
As for the cemetery today, I have seen quite a few groups or Japs, having their lunch in the cemetery, sitting on graves in the cemetery and just having a good time out for the day. I have been to Hiroshima and got a little bowl as a souvenier. What a pity the whole city was not wiped out!! Anne Carter

“One particularly notable example was Nobusuke Kishi, an accused war criminal who narrowly escaped the gallows. In his wartime capacity as Munitions Minister he had been responsible for the enslavement of more than 700,000 Korean and Chinese workers, the majority of whom, according to historian John Dower, did not survive their ordeal. Kishi not only made no secret of his past but, once it was safe to do so, outspokenly denounced MacArthur’s war crimes tribunal. All this did not stop him becoming Prime Minister of a “sincerely Americanized” in 1957”..-maternal grandfather of Shinzō Abe
now Shinzo Abe refusing to recognize the rule of the Potsdam Proclamation❓

These murderous psychopaths escaped justice because of MacArthur’s miscalculation. He also refused advice to force Emperor Hirohito to abdicate even though many members of the royal family asked him to force the abdication. Royal family members were not prosecuted for war crimes even though the Emperor and some of the others certainly deserved to be prosecuted.

Thanks for your comment.

Yes, Iris Chang’s best seller book “Nanking Massacre: The Rape of Nanking” (1997) helped tremendously to raise the knowledge of the world (especially the Western world) about the Nanking Massacre.

We should all spread this knowledge so that history will not be forgotten and will not repeat itself.

My parents did tell us about this horrible time. I remember that they had a book titled “The Rape of Nanking”. We humans seem to be capable of such barbaric acts, lacking all empathy. We must never become complacent.

Nancy Lee and I and Sung Sohn of Education for Social
Justice Foundation hope to include these priceless
insights by victims and survivors in lesson plans and
presentations before public and college students.

I believe we are trying to help with some of the translations.

Your work and efforts are very important for Americans and those
who cannot read Chinese read first hand what they experienced. It
is never too late for the truth!

take care!!

Comment on Can the American Dream Be Continued? – II by James Liu http://www.dontow.com/2018/03/can-the-american-dream-be-continued-ii/#comment-991710 Sat, 17 Mar 2018 03:09:36 +0000 http://www.dontow.com/?p=5019#comment-991710 Don,

Enjoy reading your insights. Opportunity, Timing, and Open/Equal Access are also the contributors to the American Dream. If the ‘resource’ controller sets up a protection ‘firewall’ to restrict the access to the reward-promising education system, the jobs, and opportunities to gain, then these filtered-out people won’t have a chance to achieve their dreams. Lots of examples mentioned in the history book. The classes/ranks of people in both Eastern and Western worlds, farmers, workers, scholars, and governors. The rulers understand the power of knowledge. They can restrict the people what to learn.
However, in the other end, the supply-and-demand model in a free enterprise community, needs for having knowledge workers to make business grow and profit indeed encourage these workers to make their American Dream. Not really a zero-sum model what you have discussed. The in-progress IT revolution today needs lots of IT professionals, software engineers, innovators due to the demand in communities (markets), the business side asks for the mass supply of these knowledge workers. Apparently, it becomes another wave of American Dreams for these selected people. But not for all, people without the knowledge are left out. Sad. / James
