Most Americans are unaware that Soviet forces detained and imprisoned Japanese soldiers and civilians on a massive scale following World War II. In addition to interning large numbers of Japanese nationals in Soviet-occupied territories, the Red Army deported more than half a million Japanese to labor camps in Siberia and other parts of the USSR.
