Heart-wrenching memory: "comfort women" records in north China's Shanxi (3)

Heart-wrenching memory:
Zhao Lanying sits on the bed on March 9, 2016. Zhao died at the age of 93 in Xinyi Village of Wuxiang County, north China's Shanxi Province, April 7, 2016. In June of 1941, Zhao and two sisters were captured by Japanese invaders. About two months later, her family took her home. Zhao spent three month to recover from physical injury but remained emotionally-wounded for her lifetime. 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)
