For instance in 6th grade, we were all taught about Nazi brutality, the Diary of Anne Frank, the concentration camps, Hitler, Schindler's List and even shown a movie of how starving victims looked. From grades 8th all the way till my junior year of HS, same thing. The textbook would tell in details what was done in Germany at the time.
However, when it comes to Japanese attrocities the only thing learned was the attack on Pearl Harbor and a brief explanation about them invading Manchuria (China) but not full details nor videos about the brutality done towards the Chinese and others, esp the Nanking Massacre. I had to learn about the Nanking Massacre on my own through the use of the Internet off course.
Why only teach one attrocity done but not little about the other (and if explained, it's only a brief section).

Ya, thats about what i learned in school... Learned about jap attrocities on the history channel.. U know george bush came close to being cannobalized by the japs... I think its because of "guilt" from the attomic bomb... But they were hardcore on their principles, they didn't surrender after the first one... Never judge a military operation from an armchair -jason bourne movies... Lol1

That's how all countries are.
History is written by the winners. They tell their side and they're always the good guys.2
