He believed that people would be punished if they did something wrong and their soul could not be destroyed. There was life after death. (Chan 1957, 110) The Chinese supported this idea at that time. Moreover, there were no special restrictions on practice. The believers only gathered and gave incense before the picture of Amitabha.

The United States was unaware and not ready for the attack. This left twelve American ships destroyed and another one to be very damaged. In addition to that, 2400 Americans died in the bombing and over 1100 military workers and civilians were hurt badly from the attack. This was the major event that created the tension between Japan and the United States and caused the United States to declare war on Japan the following day.

The 1937-1938 Nanjing Massacre: The forgotten Holocaust “WHEN PURPLE MOUNTAIN BURNS, NANJING IS LOST” (old Chinese adage) Introduction More than 80 years have passed since the horrific historical events known as the Nanjing Massacre. The period of terror and destruction occurred in Nanjing is undoubtedly among the worst in the history of modern warfare. This tremendous episode remained largely unknown or vaguely known for so long in particular in the Western countries and only in the 1990s exploded with such force, generating controversial debate and emotions. No one could fathom the overall extent of the terror. Chinese and International Scholars consider the Nanjing Massacre one of the most dreadful atrocities and the worst depravity
Chang (1997) pointed out the fact that the Nanjing Massacre has been branded into the Chinese collective memory as the unhealed wound for more than half a century. On December 13 in 1937, Japanese troops began six weeks of slaughter after the siege of Nanjing City, resulting in an estimated 300,000 Chinese civilians and disarmed soldiers died. However, Japan’s refusals to apologize for its war crime in China, especially the downplaying of the Nanjing Massacre as an “incident” with relatively few causalities in Japan’s new secondary school history textbooks at the start of 2005, have become a rally point for expressions of Chinese nationalism, as demonstrated by the eruption of anti-Japan protests throughout China in 2005, 2010 and 2012, respectively
The medical and social effects of the bomb altered the lives of many Japanese civilians and these individuals are forgotten in World War II’s narrative. The experiences of the “hibakusha” are not well documented because they often remain silent about their suffering. These experiences not well known and need to be remembered as an important part of Japanese-American history. The bomb altered the lives of Japanese civilians and made them minorities in their own country. The U.S.
It is pretty undisputable that the Canadians did hold prejudice and was racist towards the Japanese people. Many believe this to be the driving reason to the Japanese’ internment. Pre-Pearl Harbor, racism was not as intense, but still was real. There was some level of racism ever since the first Japanese people entered Canada in 1877 ("The Internment of the Japanese during World War II."). They were always looked down upon for the inability to speak the language there.
Around the 1940’s, over 120,000 Japanese-Americans were removed from their own houses to ten different internment camps across America. These internment camps were in some of the most unpopular and undesirable place in the U.S. Even though most of the Japanese-Americans were U.S. citizens and had never even been to Japan, Americans still thought they would spoil the American culture. Since most of the camps were unfinished when President Roosevelt signed the Executive Order 9066,
There were very few Native Americans and they were being killed off because they were living on land that supposedly needed to be built on. In Touring Indian Country it describes the fear of Native Americans that many had when traveling west, but was not actually the case because there were very few tribes with a meager population. The Touring Indian Country exemplifies people’s fear of Native Americans and the lengths people took to destroy or stay away from Native Americans. The Native Americans population was dwindling because of the diseases that were spread by the Europeans, and because of the advanced technology of Europeans in which gave them guns instead of bows and arrows. The Indian Removal Act also supports this idea because it removed around 50,000 Native Americans (Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw and others from their home) to Indian Territory (present day Oklahoma).
The U.S. had the time, and resources to arrange a demonstration, and they could have saved many harmless civilians. They didn’t think about all the lives they risked. The U.S. could have let Japan keep their emperor. Japan said that they would surrender, only if they were able to keep their emperor. We were planning on giving them their emperor, but we didn’t say anything.If the U.S. actually told Japan they were allowed to keep their emperor, japan would have surrendered, and the U.S. would have not had to drop the bomb.
