T

he mayor of Nagoya,

Takashi Kawamura,

denying the massacre in Nanjing, does nothing but cast further shame on Japan; and yet I believe these massacre deniers are in the minority in Japan.  The absolute horror and atrocities committed are so well documented that to deny them is as

egregious as denials of the Holocaust.  As a former instructor of Chinese history in American secondary schools, I could not possibly present the massacre in Nanjing as fictitious in the light of all the primary historical evidence, without suffering a complete loss of credibility among my students.  It's time for Japan to officially admit to these atrocities, without equivocation, and move on to new relationships of honesty and integrity with their Chinese counterparts.
