“The Crimes of Hirohito: A Grand Jury Trial” Premieres in San Francisco
The characters of Iris Chang, famous activist and Nanking historian, and Minnie Vautrin, known as the “American Goddess” for her role in protecting refugees in Gingling College, will be featured in this condemnation of the Japanese military and leadership during the Pacific Asia War for unspeakable crimes against humanity. Witness testimony will be pulled from survivors of the Nanking Massacre, Comfort Women, and Bataan Death March. Emperor Hirohito, one of the biggest war criminals in history who reigned unpunished until his death in 1989, will undergo this mock trial for his aggressive promotion of Japanese expansion and war crimes during World War II.
“The Crimes of Hirohito” will be presented at the Mojo Theatre (2940 16th St Ste 217 San Francisco, CA 94103) from Wednesday, March 26th thru Sunday, March 30th.
