First-Ever Footage Reveals Japan’s System Of Sex Slavery During World War II (article)

The issue of “comfort women” has long been a contentious one between Korea and Japan. Scholars estimate that, during World War II, the Imperial Japanese Amry forced as many as 400,000 “comfort women” from Korea and elsewhere in Asia into prostitution and sexual slavery.

Now, the Seoul Metropolitan Government and the Seoul National University Human Rights Center has released footage, the first of its kind, that reveals the horror and heartbreak of these abuses like never before.

The footage depicts Chinese and American troops liberating Korean sex slaves from one of the Japanese “comfort stations” (military brothels) in Songshan, Yunnan Province, China in 1944. One of the women is clearly pregnant from the rape she endured.
