The City of Freiberg, Germany, cancels the plan to build a comfort women memorial. (September 24, 2016)
First, it appears as a benign symbol to pray for world peace, however, it was revealed to be a malicious diplomatic tool to damage the reputation of Japan.

In May this year, Yeom Tae-young, mayor of Suwon city, Korea, proposed to build the statue in the German city and reached an agreement over the phone by the end of August.

Ever since this news was carried, much worry and concern was raised in Japan, for it would be the first statue for spreading lies erected in Europe. However,faced with the opposition from another sister-city Matsuyama in Japan, Freiburg reconsidered the appropriateness and decided not to build the statue. On September 24, Dieter Salomon, mayor of Freiberg, notified his intention not to accept the proposed gift from the city of Suwon. On the same day, he said in Badische Zeitung, a local newspaper, that “the real intent was to build the statues everywhere around the world and place diplomatic pressure upon Japan. When I realized it, I felt I was abused.”

In response to the news that the Suwon city had a plan to build the statue with Freiburg, mayor of Fukui city in Japan, which has kept a friendly relationship with the Suwon city, has sent a letter of protest to convey his concern and cancelled its planned tour of the mayor and four accompanying officials to visit the city in early October saying, “We asked the Suwon city about the facts but received no answer. We have to take account of the feelings of the Japanese nationals.”



The eldest son of Yoshida Seiji declares he wants to pull out all comfort women memorials built around the world (Sept, 2016)
The September-edition of the Shincho 45 magazine reports the interview of the eldest son of Yoshida Seiji.

In the interview, the eldest son says: 1) his father has never been to the Cheju Island; 2) his father wrote the forced rounding-up story using maps; 3) expressed his deep apology to the fellow Japanese for the embarrassment his father has caused; and, 4) if allowed, he wants to pull out all the comfort women memorials built around the world by using cranes.

Yoshida Seiji is the author of the book titled “My War crimes: Abduction of Koreans” published in 1983. In the book, Yoshida Seiji provided his experience of rounding-up local women by violence.

Although he confessed that the story was a novel for entertainment in 1996, the only one offender-side story was much publicized by Asahi-Shimbun newspaper in early 1990s and used as the evidence of forced recruitment for 1996 UN Coomaraswamy Report. “The Comfort Women” (by George Hicks, 1995) used Yoshida’s story as historical fact. Asahi-Shimbun acknowledged that Yoshida’s the story was a fake and retracted all articles related to story in 2014.

A New US Report denying the forced recruitment surfaces from US National Archive (June 20, 2016)
Another evidence, which denies the forced recruitment of Korean women by the Japanese Army/Authority, has surfaced from the US National Archive. Mainichi Shimbun Newspaper reported recently. The US interrogation report rendered by the US Military Intelligence Service describes in its Paragraph 18 as follows:

"18. All Korean prostitutes that the PoWs have seen in the Pacific were volunteers or had been sold by their parents into prostitution. This is proper in the Korean way of thinking but direct conscription of women by the Japanese would be an outrage that the old and young would not tolerate. Men would rise up in rage, killing Japanese no matter what fate they may suffer."

[Moguro's Comment]

Since there was no “rise-up” nor any uprising that was recorded during the period of Japanese Annexation of Korea, there should have been no “direct conscription of women by the Japanese.”

Therefore, the description of the Report constitutes the direct contradiction to the 1996 Coomaraswamy Report, 2007 US House of Resolution 121, and the descriptions engraved in metal plaques of Comfort Women Statues built in various locations of the U.S.

Adding the above inappropriate representation is the McGraw-Hill textbook's total fabrication as quoted from a book authored by Mr. Herbert Zeigler of Hawaii University.

Shamelessly, Mr. Zeigler and McGraw-Hill Company executives still remain silent about the refutation given by 19 Japanese historians. They should comment on this new evidence instead of spreading baseless lies and disdainfully continue their disparagement campaign against the nation and people of Japan.

In addition, it appears that the State of California plans to include “Comfort Women” in their textbooks. The author considers that the California State Board of Education has made a serious mistake of telling lies to their young people.
