A booklet describing the sexual slavery carried out by the Imperial Japanese Army has been published to serve as a bridge between the victims and those who haven’t had a chance to learn about the wartime atrocities.

“Field Work — ‘Comfort Women’ of the Japanese Army,” compiled by the Women’s Active Museum on War and Peace in Tokyo (WAM), is a general history of sex slavery — why it was started, how it was managed, how “comfort women” were procured and what happened to them after the war — and includes testimony from former comfort women from 10 countries.
