Commemorative statue for South Korean survivors unveiled in Sydney

A “comfort women” statue went on display in Australia on Saturday, commemorating women who were forced to work in Japanese military brothels during WWII. The 1.5-metre statue was unveiled at Croydon Park in Sydney in a ceremony attended by 89-year-old Gil Won-Ok, a survivor who flew from South Korea. She recounted her painful experience as a so-called ‘comfort woman’, and accused the Japanese government of trying to evade responsibility by covering up history.
