From 1932 to 1945, the Japanese military forced hundreds of thousands of women across Asia into qcomfort stationsq where they were repeatedly raped and tortured. Japanese imperial forces claimed they recruited women to join these stations in order to prevent the mass rape of local women and the spread of venereal disease among soldiers. In reality, these women were kidnapped and coerced into sexual slavery. This volume features the personal narratives of twelve women who were kidnapped and forced into sexual slavery. These narratives, combined with the testimonies of witnesses, investigative reports, and local histories, help tell the full story of these women, from their lives before the war to their enslavement and postwar struggles.
