Haruki Murakami, the Japanese author perennially pegged as a contender for the Nobel literature prize, has called for a fight against historical revisionism in a rare interview with Japanese media published Sunday.His comments came after a successful Japanese hotel chain operator triggered an angry backlash from China earlier this year for his book claiming the 1937 Nanjing massacre committed by Japanese troops a "fabrication". China says 300,000 people died in a six-week spree of killing, rape and destruction by the Japanese military that began in December 1937 .Published in February, Murakami's latest book "Killing Commendatore" references the Holocaust and the Nanjing massacre.
