The decision by UNESCO to add Chinese documents on the Nanking Massacre to its Memory of the World register is undergoing severe criticism in Japan. The decision was made in closed meetings not permitting any chance for expert historians to examine the varidity of material and/or present any counter-argument.
It is particularly unfair that the Government of Japan is deprived of the chance to participate in the decision process despite the fact that the honor and reputation of Japan is on the line.
(1) Who is Bokova?
The UNESCO Director-general Irina Bokova, who gave approval to the decision to add Chinese documents to the Memory of the World (MOW) register, attended the military parade of China held on September 3. She might be persuaded by the PRC president Xi Jinping to add the subject documents to the MOW register in return for the Chinafs sponsorship to the UNESCO. This fact would give the serious question to the fairness of the decision.
(2) What are the Chinese Documents?
Not much is known about these documents at this moment. Description of the subject material will be given here as soon as the information becomes available for the author.
(3) SDHF expressed objection in late July
The SDHF (Society) declared objection to the Chinese application of the documents in late July saying that gthe so-called Nanking Massacre is the wartime propaganda fabricated by Chiang Kai-shekfs Nationalist Army (a.k.a. KMT: Kuomingtang) to depict the cruelty and immorality of the enemy forces."

(4) The message of the Society in October
The rebuttal sent by the Society appears to be ignored by UNESCO. As UNESCO is seeking the wrong path to become a propaganda organ of the Chinese Communist Party dictatorship, the Society has sent the following message to many influential people around the world.

Remonstration to UNESCO Against its decision to register the Nanking Massacre as a gMOWh
Re-consider and retract the decision
by Society for the Dissemination of Historical Fact
October 12, 2015
This Society has uploaded, through our web-site http://www.sdh-fact.com/, a number of findings which clearly demonstrate that the so-called gNanking Massacreh was nothing more than wartime propaganda. We take liberty to distribute these findings worldwide through our Newsletters. The uploaded information includes 6 books and more than 20 articles and critical commentaries. Among these, we would like to emphasize the gOpen Letter to President Hu Jintao iÓÑ·jof the PRC,h which was sent to the Chinese Embassy in Tokyo on May 5, 2008, upon the occasion of his visit to Japan. The Open Letter was prepared by the Nanking Incident research group gCommittee for the Examination of the Facts about Nankingh (Chairman: Kase Hideaki). The Open Letter pointed out five key facts concerning the Nanking Massacre. Those facts clearly show that no such Nanking Massacre of any kind could have taken place. The Open Letter requested counter-argument of President Hu Jintao to refute these facts, if ever possible. The Open Letter was also made public through our web-site, Newsletter and press releases in three languages (Chinese, English and Japanese), which were distributed globally:
- Chinese: http://www.sdh-fact.com/CL02_3/18_S1.pdf
- English: http://www.sdh-fact.com/CL02_3/17_S1.pdf
- Japanese: http://www.sdh-fact.com/CL02_3/19_S1.pdf
No response has been received from President Hu Jintao, nor from his successor President Xi Jinping. We believe that they are unable to respond to the Open Letter. At any rate, UNESCO should at least ask the Chinese government to comment on the facts described in the Open Letter and determine its final judgment based on the information received from the Chinese government.
It would be morally and academically wrong for UNESCO to decide to register the so-called Nanking Massacre as a gMemory of the Worldh based on one-sided assertions and materials that have not been objectively verified. We strongly urge UNESCO to re-consider its decision.

(5) What is the intention of China?
The author believes that China is trying to drive a wedge between Japan and the rest of the world by using the Nanking Massacre hoax as the renewed propaganda to depict Japan as a nation always thirsty for blood and cruelty upon innocent people. PRC is also trying to hide its own bloody history and claim its legitimacy of staying on the power over the Chinese people by using the Nanking Massacre hoax. If you look into the history of PRC or China, you will soon notice the incredible cruelty and indifference upon human rights of the Chinese leaders such as typically shown in the example of 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre.
(6) Chinese leaders are talented in history distortions
As the military parade of September 3 well indicates, they are talented in history distortions. PRC has nothing to do with WWII victory. During a period from 1937 through 1945, Mao Tse-tung and his Communist Amy forces were hiding in the mountain cave of Enan, Shanxi Province. After the surrender of Japan to the US and its allied nations, the Communist Party forces fought a bloody civil war that lasted four years with KMT forces in order to acquire the hegemony of China. After taking the throne of the PRC Dynasty, Mao Tse-tung killed the surrendered KMT soldiers, who were his potential enemy, by using the American firepower in the Korean War. PRC smashed Tibet, East Turkistan and Mongol and after the bloodshed of mass-killings there it declared those territories are part of its own dominion from the ancient stone-age.
Who are the Chinese Communist Party leaders anyway? They are the bunch of thieves, kidnappers and murderers. They grabbed the power by force and have never asked their legitimacy through democratic process of electing parliament representatives since the establishment of PRC in 1949. They gunned down thousands of educated young peaceful demonstrators. The 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre should be registered as Memory of the World first. Today, they brag about their military might with grandiose military parade and pose threat upon the neighboring countries but are totally indifferent about the welfare of the ordinary Chinese people. Those thugs are telling lies to the world 24/7/365. They got victory over Japan? LMFAO!! THERE IS NO OTHER NATION BUT THE U.S. THAT DEFEATED JAPAN.
DO NOT BE DECEIVED BY THE CON ARTIST CHINA
World never forgets about the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre
