Being buried alive

Here is shown Chinese prisoners about to be buried alive by Japanese soldiers. Overall, in China during the Second Sino-Japanese War and World War II into which it was merged, the Japanese murdered almost 4,000,000 Chinese and over 2,000,000 others--about 6,000,000 in total. Of these, about 3,600,000 were massacres and atrocities of the kind shown here and in subsequent photos. For documentation, see China's Bloody Century, Death By Government and Statistics of Democide.

Although presumably all the photos on this site were taken during the Rape of Nanking, I believe some of them, such as the photo here, may have been taken elsewhere.
