“Comfort Women:”
Truth, Acknowledgement and Healing

Lee

Speakers include Ms. Yi Ok-seon, an 89 year old sexual slave Survivor (“comfort woman”) from the Korean “House of Sharing” and the President of the “House of Sharing”

Saturday, April 9 at 2 p.m.

Holocaust Memorial & Tolerance Center 
Welwyn Preserve, 100 Crescent Beach Road
Glen Cove, NY

This program will examine similarities between the co-called “brothels” in Nazi concentration camps and the “brothels” created by the Japanese military during WWII. Historical information and personal testimony will be presented during the event to shatter the myth that these women and girls were “prostitutes.” The truth of the sexualized slavery will be personally addressed by Ms. Yi Ok-seon, an 89 year old Survivor from Korea. She is just one of at least 200,000 women and girls who were abducted and abused during the rape campaign and known as the “comfort women.”

A special exhibit of drawings by Korean Survivors from the House of Sharing will be on display at HMTC in April.

Suggested donation of $10. To RSVP please contact Lara Carignano at (516) 571-8040 or laracarignano@hmtcli.org.
