True Stories of the Korean Comfort Women edited by Keith Howard

This compilation of personal narratives tells the story of the women who survived Japanese sexual slavery during the Pacific War. Shame permeates the painful memories, but there is no better history than hearing from the voices of those who lived it. The annotated narratives are presented without judgment, but within context.
