Scholars and educators from Japan, China and South Korea will hold a three-day symposium in Tokyo starting Feb. 27 to discuss history textbooks and related issues.

The Forum on History Conception and East Asia Peace, to be held at the International Conference Center at Waseda University, is sponsored by an association of Japanese citizens’ groups, including Peace Boat, as well as the Memorial Hall of the Victims in the Nanjing Massacre by Japanese Invaders in China and a South Korean group working to “correct” Japanese textbooks.
