In January 2003, official documents that
demolish, once and for all,l the
"Nanking Massacre" myth were discovered.
Marked "top-secret", they were compiled
in 1941 by the Chinese Nationalist
Ministry of Information under the title
Outline of International Propaganda
Operations. The documents are detailed
records describing counterintelligence
activities implemented by the
Nationalists in 1937, when war with
Japan broke out, and thereafter. Nanking
was the seat of Chiang Kai-shek's
Nationalist government in 1937. The
documents are preserved in Taiwan, home
to the Nationalists since 1949. Prof.
Higashinakano discovered them at the
Museum of Chinese Nationalist Party
History in Taipei.
An examination of those documents
reveals that the provenance of
accusations that Japan perpetrated a
massacre in Nanking is wartime
propaganda initiated by the Nationalist
intelligence organization. They also
expose European and American Nationalist
agents who were intimately involved in
the concoction of "Nanking Massacre"
According to the documents, between
December 1937 (the time when the
massacre is supposed to have been
committed) and October 1938, the
Nationalist government, now operating
from Hankou, held a total of 300 press
conferences to which members of the
foreign press were invited. However,
there is no evidence showing that
mention of a massacre in Nanking was
made at any of those conferences.
An exhaustive analysis is made on the
Nanking incident based on the newly
discovered official documents by Prof.
Higashinakano of Asia University in a
book: "Top Secret Nationalist Documents
Reveal the Truth about Nanking
Incident". You can read the full text
