No attempt to erase this history from Japanese text books or government documents, no attempt to silence the images in a photo exhibit will wash away the truth. The women were real and they were taken against their will. Deny whatever you want, the stories are here and we are listening to the women -- even if they have traveled to the other side. Their stories bear witness. Here is a radio interview I gave the other day to the North Bay Report on Sonoma County's NPR. No joke, we are going to build living monuments and concrete markers to attest to these women -- to honor and remember them. If you would like to contribute, let me know: email@example.com.
