Scholars Release New Footage of Korean Sex Slaves Massacred By Japanese Soldiers During WW2

The 19 second clip, taken on September 13, 1944, provides video evidence that the Japanese military shot and killed 30 Korean girls forced into sexual slavery as “comfort women” in the western Chinese city of Tengchong, near Myanmar.

The short film was filmed by the allied forces of China and the U.S. and had been stored in the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration. South Korean scholars unearthed the video and went public with it during a wartime sexual slavery international conference in Seoul on Tuesday, according to the Korea Herald.
