Finding closure for Japan's wartime 'comfort women'

Why does Japan's history of sexual slavery continue to create division?

On Thursday, May 14 at 19:30 GMT:


How should Japan deal with its World War II-era legacy of "comfort women"? Some historians say up to 200,000 women were raped in Japanese military brothels from 1931-1945. Many were abducted, while others were lured with promises of factory work, only to be forced into sexual slavery. Now elderly survivors want an apology from a Japanese government critics accuse of whitewashing their history.
