The Historical Museum of Sexual Slavery by Japanese Military

The Historical Museum of Sexual Slavery by Japanese Military reminds the world of the atrocious human rights violations. The museum consists of a two-story high exhibition hall and a dorm shared by women who were abducted during World War II and turned into comfort women. There is an entrance to the underground exhibition room after the media room that recreates the quarters where the women lived. Each was given a three-square meter box where each was forced into prostitution. The first and second floors of the building display the personal effects of deceased former comfort women, their recorded testimonials, and the numerous pictures they drew in therapy sessions.
