Censored Newspaper Articles in French, Russian, and Korean

The Prange Collection censored newspaper articles are divided into Local News and Foreign News (with post-censored articles and editorials from the District III office of the Civil Censorhip Detachment housed separately).  It is our understanding that this was the original organization of the articles by the Civil Censorship Detachment.  Foreign news was wired to Japan by news agencies including, but not limited to, the Associated Press (AP), United Press (UP), Reuters, the International News Service (INS) with news in English and the Agence France-presse (AFP), Telegraph Agency of the Soviet Union (TASS), and Korean Information Press (KIP) with news in French, Russian, and Korean, respectively.  Articles were also written by the Korean-resident community in Japan (primarily in Japanese, but also in Korean); those articles were considered Local News. Below are examples of articles in French, Russian, and Korean.
