Korean 'comfort woman' statue in Berlin angers Japan

DW Asia (01.10.2020)


[...] Gabriele Vogt, a professor of contemporary Japanese politics and society at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, believes the statue is unlikely to damage the image of Japan in the eyes of German people.

"The information that is with the statue does not go into the history of Japan and Korea in great depth and seems to be more focused on what is happening currently in terms of violence against women," she told DW. "It is being framed to resonate with the German public on the ongoing problem of sexual crimes and violence."
