Vivisection is the act of performing surgery or medical procedures on a living creature for the sole purposes of experimentation. It is one of the horrifying Japanese torture methods from World War II. Records indicate that vivisections were conducted in several places throughout Japan, such as at the infamous Unit 731 base and at Kyushu University. At the Kyushu center, eight United States prisoners of war were subject to the experimentation - none of them survived.
