Subject: Japanese textbooks: A request for truth?
According to Japan Today, some textbook authors are already drafting passages that speak of the Japanese military's wartime atrocities in Okinawa, and their publishers are expected to request permission to publish them soon.  This is a remarkable and welcome change in a country that has sought to discredit or ignore some of the terrible acts committed in the Emporer's name.  Most previous attempts at textbook revision have made fewer mentions of Japan's warcrimes.

Several publishers of high school history textbooks are preparing to ask the education ministry to allow them to revise the textbooks to reinsert mention of how the Japanese military forced civilians to commit mass suicide during the 1945 Battle of Okinawa, industry officials said Wednesday.

The rare move comes in the wake of growing expressions of anger from residents in Okinawa Prefecture at the ministry's instruction during the previous screening process to publishers to rewrite or delete descriptions indicating that the Japanese military forced the mass suicides.
