House of Sharing

House of Sharing

Armando Rotondi will be speaking about the House of Sharing in Korea at our meeting on Tuesday 19th.

The House of Sharing is both a museum and home to former “Comfort Women” – survivors of sexual slavery at the hands of the Japanese military during the Asia-Pacific War (1932-1945). It is the world’s first human rights museum centred on the theme of sexual slavery. The museum opened on August 14th, 1998 to record Japanese war crimes, to restore the honor of the victims and to function as a place of historical education

Come along to learn more about this great project!
