‘JUJU’ is a project that has met over 140 comfort women in many countries not only Chosun women who were left in Korea and China but also women in Philippines, Indonesia, East Timor and China to record and support testimonies and sufferings of the victims of sexual slavery by Japanese military in the last 25 years. It is also a work to confirm that all these brutality and acts against humanity such as conscription, confinement, sexual violence and abandonment are still left as an indelible imprint in the heart of comfort women.
Many people sympathize with the suffering of comfort women who are struggling to live and share their lives together through photo exhibition and lectures. JUJU connects comfort women and citizens in a triangular structure to keep the communication. We also repair houses and provide checkups and medical support to improve their living environment.
We must pay continuous attention and record it so that Japanese military sexual slavery issue can’t be distorted or concealed any more. We work together with you to find the truth and build foundation for anti-war peace from the perspective of international war crimes beyond individual national issues so that it can be remained as history and human rights issue of us, not as individual memories and tears.
What kind of life do comfort women in Asia live? We show their life from the past to the present in photos and videos.
We deliver the voices of comfort women to international communities including Japan and prepare a place for communication to share their deep resentment through photo exhibition as a cultural art.
