Massacre In Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia during Japanese occupation
During the Second World War, after Germany, Italy and Japan formed an alliance, Japan launched the Pacific war.
On 8 Dec 1941, Japan invaded Malayan Peninsula of Malaysia and eventually occupied it. For the following 3 years and 8 months, people of Malaya lived under the savagery and brutality of Japanese conqueror. They loot, burn, rape, torture and massacre the people through out the whole of Malayan peninsula.
In the state of Negeri Sembilan alone, the number of Chinese massacred is estimated at least 4,000 persons mainly unarmed innocence working men, women and children.
The single largest massacre took place in Titi within the district of Jelebu, at southern part of Negeri Sembilan, upon which as many as 1,474 were killed in one afternoon.
The second largest massacre took place in Parit Tinggi, Kuala Pilah district whereby at least 675 were killed, wiping out the whole village.
On 1 Jan 1983, the Chinese Assembly Hall of the State capital, Seremban, launched a research committee to collect the information on the atrocities committed by the invading Japanese army. The committee consists of lawyer, journalist and surviving victims.

Yang Zhen Hwa : Compensation and apology will end a atrocious chapter of the history.
The death can never be brought back alive but compensation to genuine victim is the least
Japan could do to put their mind to rest, else the issue will be raised over and over again
Soon Jian Chen : You can't kill thousands of people then just say sorry and forget about it .......
Japanese Devils ( Riben_guizi ) may be the first time that war criminals have so freely described what they did .... These men are doing this because they now realize they were wrong, and they do not want anyone to forget it happened, so that hopefully it will not happen again.
