On the outskirts of Harbin, China, lies an abandoned, desolate building. It’s here that the infamous Epidemic Prevention and Water Purification Corp, otherwise known as Unit 731, was based. Here that thousands of prisoners were killed in medical experiments and the biological weapons that would kill hundreds of thousands were developed. We investigate Japan’s chemical and biological warfare programme and look back at its legacy.
