Monument is long overdue

The denial of the facts regarding the Comfort Women is an affront to all these women of the occupied Asian countries.

Our house and whole blocks in the neighborhood were confiscated to become a barbed-wire enclosure for the Japanese army’s houses of leisure that were occupied by Comfort Women.

This occurred during the occupation of Surabaya (Java-Indonesia) during World War II. I applaud the Glendale City Council for approving this long overdue monument.
