70 Years On
Today Japan and South Korea have reached what the press calls a "historic agreement" regarding the issue of the Comfort Women (click to watch documentary).
Comfort Women... what an euphemism. Comfort Women were those women who were kidnapped throughout Asia to be held captive by the Japanese army and served as sex slaves to Japanese soldiers.
This happened for over a decade, women would live in military brothels for years, raped by soldier after soldier, day after day, night after night.
Today, one billion Yen have been donated to South Korea, but not as a compensation dictated by a court of law and given to the victims. That will most probably never happen.
For NEVER has Japan recognized their legal responsiblity of those atrocious acts. NEVER has ANY Japanese government nor military official been judged for the decisions and acts that set up a system that converted kidnapping and sexual slavery in a day-to-day reality.
And the war, for those 200 THOUSAND GIRLS AND WOMEN, will only be over with their deaths.
70 years on.
You don't know about the sex slaves of the Japanese army? You are not the only one. The existance and ordeals of those girls and women have been wiped off of history.
Let's never forget.
