"70 years after WWII , Japanese firm to apologize to US vet" AP story , Los Angeles , CA.
Today a representative of the Mitsubishi company will offer an apology to ex-POW James Murphy (94) of Santa Maria, CA at the Simon Wiesenthal Center's Museum (LA). It is the FIRST known case of a Japanese company apologizing for having used over 12,000 American POWs as slave labor at 50 Japanese locations. About 10% died. German firms have apologized.
NOTE: Japan as a country formally apologized in both 2009 and 2010 for using US POWs as slave workers but NO compensation. Japan still disputes the cause of WWII and the need for Pearl Harbor. Forgive perhaps, forget no.
