Revisionism on the other foot
Kevin Churchley makes a good point in his June 1 letter, "Dealing with Nanjing's history," in which he applauds the Tokyo High Court's decision against Shudo Higashinakano's revisionist book "The Nanking Massacre: Fact Versus Fiction."
Churchley is not alone when he speculates what might happen if he were to write a book called "Hiroshima and Nagasaki: Fact Versus Fiction." The recently published "Jungle Crows: a Tokyo Expatriate anthology" (Printed Matter Press) includes the short story "The Atom Bomb Denial, History Revisionist Textbook," a black humor satire that addresses the same concerns.
The opinions expressed in this letter to the editor are the writer's own and do not necessarily reflect the policies of The Japan Times.
