証言は証言であり、ただちには証拠にはならない。言うまでもなく、証言には2通りあるからだ。ひとつは、ただの作り話、虚言。もうひとつは、合理的裏づけのある証言である。合理的裏づけのある証言のみが、証拠となり得る。言わゆる「人的証拠」である。

証言は常に、その信憑性(真偽)を問われなければならない。その証言に、十分な合理的裏づけのある場合に限り、その証言は、はじめて「人的証拠」となる。

証言の信憑性は、証人の身元・素性、動機や背景(証言による利益・不利益)、物的な証拠などによって
客観的・総合的に吟味される。そして、その信憑性が理にかなったもの(合理)であると判断された証言のみが「人的証拠」と呼ばれる。

71年前の南京攻略戦に参戦した旧日本兵は、すでに、平均年齢90歳を超えてしまった。平成19年12月、東京・九段会館で南京攻略戦を語った旧日本兵9人のうち、すでに2人が亡くなられた。

歴史は記憶である。記憶が消えるとともに、歴史も消える。時間はもう残されていない。旧日本兵の生の言葉を、いま記憶せよ。

[いわゆる南京大虐殺は、死体なき殺人事件である、被害者なき犯罪である。]

We Japanese know that there are several ‘self-confessed ex-Japanese soldiers’ who testify that the Imperial Japanese Army committed atrocities against Chinese soldiers and civilians at ‘so-called Nanking Massacre’ (1937). However, it is a fact that there are many ex-Japanese soldiers who testify that Nanking Massacre never happened, while there are several ‘self-confessed ex-Japanese soldiers’ who testify that Nanking Massacre happened.

Testimony is only testimony. Not all of testimonies are evidences. Testimony is always required proof. Testimony is always required rationality and credibility. We can describe only ‘testimonies which have been supported by rationality and credibility’ as personal evidences (antonym: physical evidences). A man tends to believe whatever he wants. We should always hear their testimonies from an objective perspective.

It’s interesting to note that ‘so-called Nanking Massacre’ is a victimless murder. There are ‘self-confessed ex-Japanese soldiers’ who testify that the Imperial Japanese Army committed atrocities against Chinese soldiers and civilians at ‘so-called Nanking Massacre’, however, the dead bodies that Japanese soldiers are suspected to have massacred have not found yet. Nanking Massacre should be called ‘a victimless crime’ or ‘a victimless murder’.

As you may know, public sentiment against Japan in China is very strong. Such strong sentiment against Japan is called “Anti-Japanese Sentiment”. Why do you think the Chinese people have such a deep-seated antipathy toward Japan? I suppose you will answer as follows, “Because various historical issues cause the Chinese people to hold anti-Japanese sentiment.”

However, Japan is actually the largest aid donor to China. Japan has been giving technology and economic aid to China since 1979. The aid volume from Japan to China over the past 28 years amounts to fifty seven billion US dollars. But the Chinese Communist Party never informs its people about Japan’s aid and purposely keeps this information from them. Therefore, there are only a few Chinese people who know about Japan’s aid. Additionally, the Chinese Communist Party conducts top-to-bottom Anti-Japanese Education on school children. The Chinese Communist Party makes school children hate Japan through history education as a policy.

Surprisingly, the history education is based on the war-time propaganda that was used when China fought against Japan during the Sino-Japanese war 70 years ago. The Japanese media obtained a teachers’ manual for history education. In this teachers’ manual, the mental attitude toward history education and the method of teaching are written in minute detail. And more, footage of demonstration classes is attached to this teachers’ manual, too.

For example, the Nanking Massacre. According to this teachers’ manual, teachers must show children many photos of Nanking Massacreand point out the brutality and barbarity of the aggressive war that Japanese imperialism committed. Teachers must impress upon children a deep-seated grudge against Japan by showing scenes of mass murder on an unimaginable scale. China exports Anti-Japanese Education to the world and implants an irrational prejudice against the Japanese people.China is pushing black propaganda of the Nanking Massacre using 143 photos around the world. However, all 143 photos that China is presentinghave been revealed to the entire worldas fake, fabricated, or utterly irrelevant to the Nanking Massacre. Putting aside the argument of whether or not there was a massacre in Nanking, the fact remains that there is not a single photo that proves that there was a massacre. Especially if the photos were presented in a modern-day court of law. I speak out, “Anti-Japan” is China’s national policy. Japan is the imaginary enemy of China. Why do you think the Chinese Communist Party holds such a policy?

If you look back over the modern history of China, the Tiananmen Square incident happened in 1989. 1989 is the year that socialist countries turned toward democratization one after another in Eastern Europe. The Chinese Communist Party feared the worst-case scenario then. The worst-case scenario was the collapse of the single-party regime in China. The Chinese Communist Party needed to turn the attention of the Chinese people away from democratization to a foreign enemy. So, Japan was set up as an imaginary enemy in around 1994. At the time, Jiang Zemin was the state president of China. The Chinese Communist Party started conducting top-to-bottom Anti-Japanese Education in around 1994.

Therefore, the younger generation of Chinese has aggressive and hostile feelings toward Japan. The Chinese people’s Anti-Japanese sentiment became known to the Japanese people in around 2004. When Japan’s national soccer team went to Chongqing in China, Chinese fans booed Japan’s national anthem and threw plastic bottles and other items at Japanese supporters.

And in April 2005, Anti-Japanese riots broke out in various regions of China all at once. With these Anti-Japanese riots as a beginning, the existence of Anti-Japanese Education became known through Japanese media. In today’s Japan, the trend of growing nationalism started as a reaction to the Chinese people’s Anti-Japanese sentiment.

This is the law of action and reaction.

It was around 1989 that China started energetically conducting anti-Japanese education on school children.  Please think back on what happened around 1989 in the world.  As you may know, in Eastern Europe, socialist countries turned toward democratization one after another and socialist system collapsed in a blink of an eye.  In the same year 1989,  around the middle of April,  in China’s capital city Beijing, a lot of ordinary people mainly university students started gathering in Tiananmen Square to appeal for democratization. About one and a half months after that, there were more than 100,000 people in Tiananmen Square.  Furthermore, the democratic movement that started in Tiananmen Square grew and spread throughout the country. The Chinese Communist Party, which had a sense of crisis about the democratic movement’s growing momentum then, cracked down on more than 100,000 people with military weapons on June 4, 1989.  It led to bloodshed.  This is the Tiananmen Square incident.

After the Tiananmen Square incident, the Chinese Communist Party, which tried desperately to maintain single-party regime then, set up Japan as an imaginary enemy and decided to strengthen anti-Japanese education to turn public dissatisfaction with politics toward Japan.  The Chinese Communist Party started putting its energy into implanting deep-seated grudge against Japan in school children’s mind.  The Chinese Communist Party included many blood-thirsty photos of so-called “the Nanking Massacre” of “Japanese soldier’s atrocities” in history textbooks for Chinese school children.  Surprisingly, however, there is not a single photo that proves that the Nanking Massacre happened actually,  moreover,  there is not a single photo that proves even that Japanese soldiers committed atrocities against Chinese people.  I can hear your angry voice such as “No way! You’ve got to be kidding, right?”  It is natural that the people who believe the Nanking Massacre should be disagreeably surprised to hear that.

Do you know how many photos China is presenting as photos of the Nanking Massacre?  Do you know how many photos is the Nanking Massacre Memorial Hall (in Nanjing) exhibiting to prove Japanese soldiers’ atrocities in Nanking 1937?  There are 143 photos in all.  A professor of intellectual history at Asia University, Higashinakano Shudo examined each of those 143 photos for several years.  Higashinakano investigated each of those 143 photos scholastically and indicate the source of each photo. (ex.. who shot it? when/where was it shot? when was it released to the public for the first time?)  At last, Higashinakano reached a conclusion that all 143 photos that China is presenting are fake, fabricated or utterly irrelevant to the Nanking Massacre.  That is to say, there is not a single photo that proves that there was the Massacre in Nanking 1937.  And he compiled a whole book of this conclusion and published “Analyzing the Photographic Evidence of Nanking Massacre” in 2005.  His book was sold one hundred thousand for one year from it was first published.  And he appeared in the several TV show.  Therefore, putting aside the argument whether the Nanking Massacre or not, among the Japanese people, there has been growing recognition that China is presenting dubious photos in the name of Nanking Massacre’s photos even though there is not a single photo to prove the Nanking Massacre.

Do you know when the Nanking Massacre Memorial Hall (in Nanjing) opened?  It opened in 1985 that 48 years had passed since 1937 that the Nanking Massacre is thought to have happened.  Both Hiroshima Atomic Bomb Museum and Nagasaki’s Museum opened in 1955 that 4 years passed since 1951 that Japan’s autonomy was restored with the conclusion of the San Francisco Peace Treaty. (=They opened 10 years after the war ended.)  Do you wonder what did China do for the pest 48 years?  In all of quotations from Chairman Mao Zedong (1893 – 1976) ,  Mao Zedong did not have a word out about the Nanking Massacre.  Do you know when Iris Chang (1968 – 2004) published “the Rape of Nanking”?  She published the book in 1997 for the first time.  Iris Chang said that she was shown photos of the Nanking Massacre at Chinese American’s meeting in 1994,  was shocked by the cruelty of Japanese soldiers and decided to write a book.  Two years later after that, Iris Chang took two years to write “The Rape of Nanking”.  “The Rape of Nanking” was sold over half a million and became a bestseller in America.  It’s not an exaggeration to say that “the Rape of Nanking” expanded awareness of the Nanking Massacre to the world.

Meanwhile, almost Japanese people didn’t know what were written in “the Rape of Nanking”.  Because it was 2008 that “the Rape of Nanking” was published in Japanese.  Iris Chang wanted to publish her book in Japan earlier.  But the Japanese publishing company, Kashiwa Shobo, which Iris Chang asked to publish Japanese version of this book,  oppositely advised Iris Chang to correct many errors of “the Rape of Nanking” before translating English into Japanese.  The Japanese publisher, Kashiwa Shobo said to Iris Chang, “As you may know, in Japan, there are controversy as to whether the Nanking Massacre happened or not.  So in Japan, some historians  insist the Nanking Massacre happened, but other historians deny the Nanking Massacre as absolutely groundless.  Your “the Rape of Nanking” are pointed out more than 90 errors by both sides of historians.  Especially, most of 90 errors were caused by lack of knowledge about Japanese history at the Japanese compulsory education level.  Can you publish such a book without any correction in Japan?”  But Iris Chang did never take advice from the Japanese publisher.  According to Iris Chang,  she heard the story of the Nanking Massacre from her parents, she learned it, she looked photos of the Nanking Massacre and she was shocked at pictures of Japanese soldiers’ atrocities.  In other words, Iris Chang believed hoax, she was shocked at fake pictures and she wrote a cheap novel.  In 2008, “the Rape of Nanking” was translated textually into Japanese and was published in Japan.  “The Rape of Nanking” has become generally recognized as a nonsense novel among the Japanese.
