Chinese People’s Memories
This chapter first discusses the memories of the Japanese colonization of Manchuria that were recounted by ordinary Chinese people and then published in the cultural and historical documents collections. These authors and interviewees—farmers during the Manchukuo era—lived, at the time they were solicited to write memoirs or interviewed, in the provinces of Jilin, Heilongjiang, and Liaoning in Northeast China. Second, the chapter presents oral narratives of the Chinese who adopted the children of Japanese agrarian settlers in the aftermath of the war. Finally, it presents the oral narratives of three men, the children of Japanese colonists, who were left behind in China in 1945. These men visited Japan at the state's expense to meet their Japanese relatives in the late 1980s, but they renounced Japanese nationality and decided to stay in China as Chinese nationals.
