Here's a link to the actual book. The photo appears on page 99. Page 113 is said to contain the date of publication, but it's in Japanese.

Interesting. But the program brought up a number of other points that shouldn't be discarded with the photo.
Specifically the memory of the people and their stories. While it doesn't rise to the level of proof, I do think they need an explanation.

I agree. Photo or no photo, I would need a good reason if I were going to disregard the various eyewitness accounts.
