Dr. Shiro Ishii's Horrifying Unit 731 Put Prisoners Through Painful And Deadly Experiments

Headed by surgeon general Shiro Ishii, Unit 731 was involved in procedures that were as shocking as any witnessed during World War II. With a focus on biological and chemical warfare, this unit was located in occupied China and kept as many as 400 prisoners at a time usually, but not exclusively POWs.

Unit 731 had a freezer that could be set to 50-below zero, its victims were frequently placed in large centrifuges and rapidly rotated to death, exposed to anthrax, cholera, and even flamethrowers. Amputation, bizarre anatomical transplants and vivisections were routinely performed without anesthesia. Ishii frequently asked his staff how many logs had fallen on any given day, "logs" a euphemism for human beings. Unbelievably, at the conclusion of the war, Ishii and his staff negotiated their freedom by offering their biological research to the US government. It was accepted, and Ishii would escape any responsibility for his activity. He died in 1959 of natural causes.
