Heart-wrenching memory:
Ren Lan'e is seen at home at Gucheng Village of Wuxiang County, north China's Shanxi Province, March 10, 2016. Ren died on July 1, 2016 at the age of 85. In August of 1944, Ren was raped by Japanese invaders at her home and taken to a gun turret. About one month later, she was rescued by her brother. Women forced into sexual slavery by the Imperial Japanese Army before and during World War II were called "comfort women." Research shows some 400,000 women in Asia were forced to be "comfort women" for the Japanese army during World War II, nearly half of whom were Chinese. However, the Japanese government has refused to acknowledge legal responsibility for the "comfort women" issue so far. Reporters from Xinhua spent many years to look for the victims and recorded their current lives. (Xinhua/Zhan Yan)
