ESJF Meets Pacific Atrocities Education in SF

On Tuesday, July 10th, Sung Sohn provided historical background on the issues of “comfort women” to summer interns at Pacific Atrocities Education in San Francisco. Four interns made many insightful comments and posed questions about the topic. Together, we critically examined several primary documents from the ‘30s and ‘40s. Racism was the most common historical concern for the participants. At the end of my presentation, the interns arrived at the conclusion that the topic of “comfort women” is deeply rooted in racism, imperialism, cycles of oppression, discrimination, and violence, as well as crimes of humanity. Jenny Chan, Co-Founder, is running the internship program for the second time this summer.
