Peace Monument

In Memory of more than 200,000 Asian and Dutch women who were removed from their homes in Korea, China, Taiwan, Japan, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, East Timor, and Indonesia, to be coerced into sexual slavery by the Imperial Armed Forces of Japan between 1932 and 1945.

And in celebration of proclamation of "Comfort Women Day" by the City of Glendale on July 30, 2012, and of passing of House Resolution 121 by the United States Congress on July 30, 2007, urging the Japanese Government to accept historical responsibility for these crimes.

It is our sincere hope that these unconscionable violations of human rights shall never recur.


"I was a sex slave of Japanese military."
Torn hair symbolizes the girl being snatched from her home by the Imperial Japanese Army.
Tight fists represent the girl's firm resolve for a deliverance of justice.
Bare and unsettled feet represent having been abandoned by the cold and unsympathetic world.
Bird on the girl's shoulder symbolizes a bond between us and the deceased victims.
Empty chair symbolizes survivors who are dying of old age without having yet witnessed justice.
Shadow of the girl is that of an old grandma, symbolizing passage of time spent in silence. Butterfly in shadow represents



hope that victims may resurrect one day to receive their apology.
