school level textbooks in the u.s. i noticed it didn't list china as one of the allies participating in the asian pacific war. a couple of years ago, i began working on an effort to try to come up with some reasonable estimate as the number of deaths in the asian pacific war. recognizing that because of the lack of no solid data, it's impossible to certify any specific amount. after collaboration with colleagues and always attempting to go to the lowest rather than the highest number, i came one figure of about 25 million deaths during the asian pacific war. of that 25 million, about 6 million were combatants. about 3 million were chinese, about 2 million were japanese to balance other nations including the u.s. that means that of the deaths during the asian pacific war, 19 million were noncombatants. of that total, roughly about a million were japanese. the sources are pretty close together with respect to japanese boss losses, maybe a little more, maybe a little less, which is to say that for every japanese noncombatant who died in the asian pacific war, of those 17 or 18 million,

textbooks in the u.s. and i don't of them i noticed it didn't even list china as one of the allies participating in the asian pacific war. a couple of years ago, i began working on the effort to try come up with some reasonable estimates to the number of deaths in the asia pacific war, recognizing that because of the lack of solid data, it is impossible to certify a specific amount. after considerable work and collaboration, and always attempting to go for the lowest rather than the highest number, i came up with a figure of about 25 million deaths. of that 25 million, 6 million were combatants. of that 69, 3 million were chinese, 2 million were japanese, the balance, other nations, including the u.s. that means that of the deaths during the asia-pacific or, 19 million were noncombatants. of that total, roughly about a million were japanese. the sources are pretty close together, with respect to japanese losses. maybe a little more, maybe a little less. needless too say -- say that for every japanese combatant that that, somewhere between 17 and 18 combatants of other nations died

towards the citizens of korea, the citizens of china, the other victims across asia of japanese oppression, so i want to show that part of it, too. and i also wanted this one to complicate it further. this was about the inherent p.o.w.s. there were p.o.w.s in a camp in hiroshima. 23 of them were at least in the bombing. many of them survived the atomic bombing only to be beaten to death by enraged japanese citizens. and this shows the americans who were beaten to death by the japanese after the bomb was dropped. there's something -- and i'm not sure exactly why, but maruki has depicted several women among the american p.o.w.s. there were actually no women there. so this to me is somewhat baffling, why they chose to do so. but what we're seeing here is the progression. in the beginning, they focus just on japanese victims in hiroshima. then they begin expanding and they start to show the japanese as victimizers and they show the -- they've got one panel on the ra pe of nanjing. they have one on auschwitz. they're trying to make this a broader human story. this was done in 1968. t
