COMFORT WOMEN WANTED (audio of a Japanese soldier)

Audio of Yasuji Kaneko, a former Japanese soldier who talks about his everyday life, hopes and dreams, and also what he witnessed at the military rape camps.

English Translation:

“Comfort women had to have sex with 50 or even 100 soldiers a day. So many soldiers were waiting in a very long line. One after another came. We didn't have one hour or two hours. Just 10 minutes or 15 minutes. So my only hope today is that people will never repeat what we did in the war and there will never be a war again."
