NHK Documentary: Road to Redemption

 

This film tells the story of two men who stood on opposite sides of the front line in World War II. Mitsuo Fuchida was the chief commander of Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor. Jacob DeShazer, a U.S. Army Air Force corporal, dropped incendiary bombs on Nagoya in a revenge raid. After the war, both became devout Christians and embarked on missions in each other’s homeland. They eventually met – and forged a bond.

NHK WORLD SPECIAL
Hatred and Forgiveness

 

On a street in Manila, during the final days of World War II, a man stands devastated, holding the dead body of his baby daughter. This man was Elpidio Quirino, who would later become President of the Philippines. In the Battle of Manila, a fierce battle between Japan and the United States which resulted in 100,000 civilian casualties, he lost his wife and three of his children. He hated the Japanese. Yet, eight years later, as President he would make a remarkable decision to grant pardons to Japanese war criminals held in the Philippines, sending them home to Japan. Why did Quirino do this against the strong wave of opposition? In a radio broadcast he explains, “I have granted pardons so that hatred against the Japanese will not remain among my descendants and the Filipino people.”

On January 1, 2010, Little Hope Baptist Church burned to the ground in Canton, Texas. Officials concluded the fire was caused by a problem in the century-old church’s wiring. But when nine more churches went up in flames in one month, the largest manhunt in East Texas history was ignited. In this riveting investigation of a community terrorized from the inside out, families are torn apart and even Satan himself is considered a suspect.
