Tokyo War Crimes Trial: Tojo Hideki (Photographs) [29.4.1946 Onwards]

On April 29th, 1946, the Far East International Military Tribunal began the trial of 28 top-level Japanese War Criminals. On May 3rd, the Court began the trial proper of Tojo Hideki, with Chief Public Prosecutor Keenan – over May 4th and May 5th – reading-out the 42-page Indictment that listed the Crimes Against Peace, War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity committed by Tojo Hideki between January 1st, 1928 and September 2nd, 1945.

(Translator’s Note: Tojo Hideki (東条 英機) – the former Prime Minister of Japan – was arrested and tried by the victorious United States following its military victory over Japan in the Pacific theatre at the end of WWII. The  US – wanting to re-build Japan in its own image – decided to grant immunity to the Japanese Emperor (thought to be the ‘actual’ architect of Japanese military aggression during WWII), and instead pursue Tojo Hideki. This policy was dedicated to finding Tojo Hideki ‘guilty’ of all charges levelled against him (regardless of how incredible or improbable) – and thus secure the Death Sentence. Tojo Hideki was hanged by the US Occupation Forces on December 23rd, 1948.) ACW 29.3.2017
