Heart-wrenching memory:
90-year-old Hao Yuelian (R) walks to a courtyard with the assistance of her daughter in Yanggongling Village of Wuxiang County, north China's Shanxi Province, July 24, 2018. In June of 1943, Hao was abducted by Japanese invaders. One month later, her family redeemed her from the Japanese army. After that, she was captured again and rescued by her father and 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)
