Sword cut

This photo appears to show a flicking sword cut (the white blur) by the Japanese soldier on the left. Whether by sword cut or decapitation, the poor Chinese prisoner will soon be murdered. For documentation on Japan's murder of near 4,000,000 Chinese during the Sino-Japanese War (which in 1941 merged into World War II) and the Nanjing massacres, see China's Bloody Century Source: "Alliance in Memory of Victims of the Nanjing massacre." For a background on the photo, see a previous photograph.
