Memorial day for victims of sexual slavery

A woman places a wreath on the head of a statue of a girl representing the victims of Japan's wartime sexual slavery during a ceremony at a park in the city of Gangneung on South Korea's east coast on Aug. 14, 2020, to mark the International Memorial Day for Comfort Women. In 2018, South Korea established the memorial day to remember victims of sex crimes committed by Japan during World War II. The event came one day ahead of the 75th anniversary of Korea's liberation from Japan's colonial rule. (Yonhap)
