comfort women - women of "no return"

korean women in these photographs were cheated mostly in various ways and taken away from home towns into japanese military “comfort stations” in china during the aisa-pacific war.  many of them didn’t have any chance to return or visit  their families again even in a short-term in home lands after the end of the war. they stayed there till the end of their lives and some of them could not speak korean any longer. for example changing personal identities was the typical way of surviving hardships they had to face.
