This not only tells of a Family torn apart and damaged by war but it talks of atrocities forced upon women. Those women have never received justice and it shows how America and Japan have never taken responsibility for their shameful acts. They ignored and/or denied that these many thousands of women, paid a shoking price for the power, prestige and imagined respect due to them. History softens the stories. These poor women will slide into history as stories, no longer our reality.
