On Wednesday, June 24, 2015, the Research Center for Korean Community hosted a seminar at Korean American Youth Foundation in Flushing. RCKC's director, Professor Pyong Gap Min, gave a talk titled "The Emergence of the 'Comfort Women' Issue and Survivors' Breaking Silence in the Early 1990s." He discussed a number of issues related to Korean victims of Japanese military sexual slavery during World War II. Recently, this tragic issue has been prominent again in U.S. and Korean media with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's recent visits to the U.S. and to shrines of Japanese war criminals.
