Mitsubishi and World War II Slave Labor
The following is an excerpt from Maurice Mo Mazer's Testimony/Statement to US Senate Jdiciary Committee on June 28, 2000 on his POW Slave Labor experience at Mitsubishi Mining:
I was imprisoned in Hanawa camp in Japan. Each morning the Japanese soldiers turned me and my fellow prisoners of war over to the guards for Mitsubishi mining, a private company which enslaved us for its own profit and forced us to labor in its copper mines and smelter mines. I was beaten unmercifully by the Mitsubishi guards and had my back broken in he mines when one of the guards ran a car carrying the mine operative into me, slamming me against the wall of the mine. Today I suffer numerous health problems directly attributed to the time I spent as a slave laborer.
