Heart-wrenching memory: "comfort women" records in north China's Shanxi (4)

Heart-wrenching memory:
Liu Fenghai sits on the bed on Aug. 3, 2016. Liu died at the age of 90 in Nanyuan Village of Qinxian County, north China's Shanxi Province, Jan. 20, 2017. In the spring of 1943, Liu Fenghai and villager Liu Yuegui were captured and being raped by Japanese invaders. They were thrown into a valley several days later. Liu Fenghai never received the apology she longed for in 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)
