Thank you so much for seeking justice for the thousands of victims harmed by the Japanese Imperialists and expressing what they have always intended to say,yet without an outlet.
One of my families was captured and raped by the Japanese army, and was then shot to death when trying to escape. My father was captured by the Japanese army to labor as a coolie, during that time he was beat and injured,and nobody took care of his injury causing his lifelong disability. A young woman in my village was gang raped by Japanese soldiers, who committed suicide later because of shame. There are quite a lot of people in Hunan who have similar experiences. Where can the victims report their experiences in detail?
Here I write to you to inquire about what things need to be done and how to contact. Please let me know.
