戰爭證詞:日本記憶中的二次世界大戰!史無前例的紀錄片(Testimonies of War: WW2 Remembered in Japan)

戰爭不僅給參戰人員,而且給普通老百姓造成難以想像的痛苦。這部史無前例的紀錄片講述了非參戰人員眼中的不為人知的故事。它將講述日本人民在戰爭期間的日常生活,直至1945年的毀滅事件。淹沒在法西斯言論中的公眾自己也犯下了深深的自毀行為,而這種行為延伸到了最脆弱的兒童身上。第二次世界大戰結束後的第76年,日本歷史頻道為經受了人類歷史上前所未有的折磨的日本老百姓點燃一道亮光。該紀錄片在全社會產生了反響,同時也解釋了日本人為什麼直到今天還信守和平。

War of Innocents tells the story of Japan's "15-year War", with a focus on Japanese civilians living on the mainland. From the invasion of Manchuria to Japan's near-annihilation at the conclusion of the Pacific War, the History Channel original documentary tracks the empire's rapid rise as a budding democracy to its devastating final days. Told by experts as well as those who lived through it, the documentary unravels how civilians were trained and persuaded to lay down their lives for an unwinnable war by a mix of religion, patriotism, entertainment, and propaganda.
