Manchuria and Korea

 POWs were used as labour on the land as well as in heavy industrial activity. This is one of the less well documented areas of POW activity.

Manchuria was where the Japanese Army’s infamous Biological Warfare Unit 731 was situated. Their activities seem to have concentrated on Chinese and Russian POWs.
