One Bogus, Erotic Offer

During World War II, The Japanese murdered millions of Chinese civilians and forced Chinese and Korean women to become sex slaves for the Japanese military.  A good book on this topic is The Rape of Nanking by Iris Chang.

The Chinese feel that Japan has not apologized properly for what Japanese troops did in China and Korea in the 1930 – 1940s, and many Chinese are still angry.  I’ve read that Japanese textbooks don’t even mention what Japanese troops did in China or admit that Japan bombed Pearl Harbor bringing America into the war leading to the dropping of atomic bombs on Japanese cities to end the war.

Is this a case of national denial by Japan’s modern-day leaders—the inability to admit that Japan’s leaders during World War II were war criminals?

Well, back in June 2010, a hot-and-sexy Japanese porn star, Anri Suzuki, was reported to have made an offer that would be difficult to refuse.  Click on the following link to discover what she allegedly offered as a way to say she was sorry for what Japan did. Source: TheSunCo.UK

After reading the report and seeing her photo, it might be easy to imagine millions of Chinese college students applying to attend Japanese universities to get closer to Anri.

Then there was the denial. Soon after The Sun Co. report in June, 2010, Anri Suzuki made it clear that she was not offering sex as reparations for the Second Sino-Japanese War.

Nippon Cinema.com reported, “Suzuki posted an in-depth blog entry in which she refuted the claims made in the article one by one. For instance, she’s never even been to Taiwan and has certainly never given any interviews there. The fake article also states that Suzuki has a doctorate in Sino-Japanese history. However, Suzuki points out that she’s a high school graduate and has never even attended university, let alone earned a doctorate. The only part of the story she seems to agree with is the fact that she’s appeared in adult videos.”

    I briefly had a German friend. She said the Holocaust was not even mentioned in German history text books. Do American history texts mention the slaughter of Native Americans? Or the realities of slavery? Do nations ever tell the truth about their history? Not that I’ve noticed. If you haven’t read “Postwar: A History of Europe Since 1945” by Tony Judt … it does a lot of debunking. One of the best modern history books I’ve ever read. It’s openly opinionated. I like that in a book. Too bad he died right after finishing it.

  2. Many people were saddened when Iris Chang committed suicide in 2004, and many of us thought that the sad nature of her writing must have had an effect.

    • I understand that she was prone to depression and you may be right that the nature of the rsearch she had to do to write about the rape of Nanking was more than she could handle—that and the pressure to succeed that is so much a part of Chinese culture for those who do succeed—not so much for those who don’t. The poor practice Taoism and the successful keep competing.
