In the early autumn of 1945, Japan's infamous adventure in China came to a close. Many of the Japanese prisoners taken at that time would serve in forced labor camps and would not be repatriated until 1950.
"One of the unhappiest of the prisoners was the effeminate, thin-shouldered puppet emperor of Manchuria, Henry Pu Yi (1906 - 1967). The Soviets found the frightened Manchu and his entourage huddled on the airfield at Mukden. But the Russians apparently considered the frail, nearsighted emperor a helpless pawn rather than a dangerous war criminal."
