195 The Truth about Korea/1919

Rare 1919 booklet, devoted to revealing Japanese atrocities in Korea, entitled THE TRUTH ABOUT KOREA, by Nathaniel Peffer, Peking Correspondent of The China Press. No publication date, but apparently published in 1919, since it refers to Korea as "The Belgium of the Far East," a reference comparing German war crimes in Belgium to Japanese war crimes in Korea. It also refers to the March 1st, 1919 protest and uprising, and describes it as if it occurred very recently. A gripping piece of journalism, which asks, on its front cover: "Do you know: That a Korean must obtain police permission to draw money from his own bank account? That in their efforts to obtain 'evidence' the Japanese tortured Korean men and boys by crossing their fingers over hot wires, lacerating their flesh with sharp hooks and searing it with hot irons, pouring hot water and red pepper down their nostrils, inserting slivers of wood under their finger nails? That in the schools Korean children are taught to despise their own civilization; their language is forbidden, their history scorned? That the country writhes in the grip of spies more omnipresent than in the darkest days of Tsarist Russia?" Japan annexed Korea in 1910 and ruled over the peninsula ruthlessly until after the Second World War. A 40-page double-columned report, originally 20 cents, apparently published by The China Press. Peffer was a well-known journalist, and an expert in Asian affairs. Booklet divided into chapters, "A General Survey," "The Belgium of the Far East," "Where the Pinch Comes," "Suppressing Korean Thought," "The First Day of March," "A Japanese Idea of Reform," "Baron Saito Interviewed," and "The Lesson to China." A valuable item for those researching this time period in Japanese - Korean relations.
