Video, web sites, an article and a movie:


A You Tube video titled "Endangered Japan: A small survey on the conflict between Japan and Korea. Book II: Sex, Lies, and Comfort Women," undated, at:

The author writes: "On March 28, 2013, this video was reported by some group of people and suspended probably by their comrades working in YouTube for unknown reasons. If you watch this video, you will know that this is an impartial portrait of what Comfort Women were actually like and doesn't violate any article of the Community Guidelines of YouTube. I strongly protest against the infringement of freedom of speech."

bullet Brough's Books maintains a list of books which describe wartime atrocities allegedly committed by Japanese forces. See: Most deal with the Rape of Nanking and the Comfort Women atrocities.

bullet Chunghee Sarah Soh, "Links to Comfort Women documents," at:

bullet "The Comfort Women: Colonialism, War and Sex," Special edition of Positions, East Asia Culture Critique, Duke University, Vol. 5, Number 1, Spring 1997.

bullet Ustinia Dolgopol & Snehal Paranjape, "Comfort Women: An Unfinished Ordeal," A Report of the International Commission of Jurists, Geneva, Switzerland, (1994).

bullet Dai Sil Kim Gibson has also produced a movie: "Silence Broken." It was broadcast on PBS on 2000-MAY. Excerpt from a review by Library Journal, 2000-JUL:

"English subtitles communicate the raw stories of these women, some only children when they were taken, who were repeatedly raped, abused, forced into prostitution, and shipped like military supplies to far off places. When the survivors returned home, their own government shamed them into silence. Today, many Japanese leaders and veterans deny responsibility and refused to apologize or provide compensation."
