World War 2
My late father-in-law, a Chinese medical Doctor, during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong, was forced at gun-point to accompany boats taking Hong Kong citizens to a near-by island where they were left to starve to death. This was done by the Japanese as a way of dealing with the severe food shortage at the time. However, in order to pass as a medical transport ship, I believe, they needed a medical doctor on board. My late father-in-law was forced to fill this role. Does anyone else have information on this, such as other medical people in this role, which island, etc.?
