SENKO, YASUE ° (1888–c. 1950), Japanese "specialist" on Jewish affairs. An army officer in 1927–1928, he traveled in Palestine and Europe to study Jewish problems. On his return, he published Kakumei Undo wo Abaku ("Revolutionary Movements Exposed," 1931) and soon became known as one of Japan's leading antisemites. In Yudaya no Hitobito ("The Jewish People," 1937) he continued his attacks on the Jews. In 1938 Senko, promoted to colonel, was dispatched to Manchuria to advise the Japanese army on policy toward the Jewish communities but his antisemitism abated in the following years and at times he tried to protect the Jews in *Manchuria and *Shanghai. In 1945 he was captured during the Soviet occupation of Manchuria, and after 1950 nothing further was heard of him.
