A former prison that held war criminals involved in the Japanese invasion of China has reopened to the public after two years' renovation. Besides nearly 1,000 Japanese criminals, another 71 war criminals from the puppet state of Manchukuo were also detained in the Sushun War Criminals prison. Among them, is China's last emperor Pu Yi.
For many visitors, the last emperor Pu Yi's stories here are worth a lot of attention.
Pu Yi came to the prison in 1950. Nurse Zhao Yuying still remembers the moment she first met Pu Yi at the prison.
Zhao Yuying, nurse of Fushun War Criminal Management Center,said, "I was quite impressed when I saw Pu Yi. He had been very perky during the age of the puppet state of Manchukuo. But he was quite different when he came here. He was extremely nervous, upset and in a panic."
80-year-old Xu Ze was an instructor at the management center. He witnessed Pu Yi's years in prison.
Xu Ze, instructor of Fushun War Criminal Management Center,said, "The center gave them a task to build some paper boxes. But Pu Yi couldn't do it well. I told the other criminals not to blame him and be patient with him. He was not happy. But gradually he was able to handle that."
