Shanghai Jiaotong University Will Build Database of Japanese War Criminal Trials

A university in China has plans to build a database for trials of Japanese war criminals after WWII. “Shanghai Jiaotong University, together with the National Library of China and The Second Historical Archives of China, will collect dossiers on Japanese war criminals excluding the 28 Class A criminals such as the former prime minister and army generals, according to the university on Thursday.” If, like me, you had no idea there were classes of WWII criminals, PBS both has an overview of the Tokyo War Crimes Trials and defines the different classes.
