..."When we first met the survivors known as "Lolas," Filipino for grandmother, in the summer of 2019, they numbered only a few dozen. In their 80s and 90s, they were girls in the 1940s when soldiers in the Japanese Imperial Army systematically raped and brutalized them. Historians estimate that some 200,000 women were victimized by Japanese soldiers in parts of Asia occupied by Japan. For 50 years the survivors in the Philippines buried the trauma, until they emerged, at first tentatively, then defiantly, to demand reparations from the Japanese government."...

When I was stationed in Korea the “comfort” women from Korea were raising hell. When these women were in their late 50’s etc they realized being sexually exploited wasn’t their fault and they started confronting Japanese officials. I hope the Philippine women who endured this hell continue and their children and their children’s children .God bless them!

The Japanese always have someone else to blame. Koreans, Mongols, Chinese. They will ll die off soon. Just like Nanking.
