New Database for Tokyo Trials of WWII

A database has been launched with information and transcripts from the “Tokyo Trials” following World War II. “The database currently contains documents amounting to 60 million words, 50 million of which are in English. It also contains 700 pictures and video records totaling 50 minutes, all featuring the trial and key figures involved.” Currently the site is in Chinese (I don’t know enough about Chinese writing systems to tell you if it’s written Cantonese or Mandarin, sorry), but Google Translate did a decent enough job for me to poke around. Plans are to translate it into other languages.
