Foreign Correspondents Ep.155 - Historical reconciliation
Remorse and denial of past war crimes
How Germany and Japan deal with the past

Germany has apologized once again for its dark history during the Second World War. On September 1, German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier attended a memorial event in Poland to mark the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of World War II, and apologized to the Polish victims of the conflict while asking for forgiveness. Germany has made continuous efforts to reconcile with its past, ever since West German Chancellor Willy Brandt's historic gesture of apology in 1970, which paints a stark contrast with the attitude shown by Japan regarding its own wartime history. The Tokyo government had also expressed remorse on several occasions since the Kono Statement was announced in 1993, but they have been undercut by subsequent Japanese leaders who have gone as far as outright denying that war crimes had taken place. More controversy has been stirred by the visits to the Yasukuni Shrine by high-profile Japanese politicians, as well as the Tokyo government's decision to revise its history books to paper over its wartime atrocities. In this week's edition of 'Foreign Correspondents', we sit down with our panel of journalists to talk more about Germany and Japan's different approaches in how they view and deal with their respective wartime histories.
