The topics to be discussed by both speakers include: Unit 731, the world's largest research center and factory of weapons of mass destruction, inhumane atrocities including vivisection on live humans, why its leaders were never prosecuted, its lasting impact to today with hundreds of thousands of chemical weapons still buried in China, and the significance of this issue today in terms of world stability and peace.
