The Museum of Tolerance is pleased to invite you to a special program with

Kim Bok-Dong

One of the few surviving Korean so-called "Comfort Women"

Monday, July 29, 2013 at 7:00pm


Kim Bok-Dong was only 15 when she was forced into sexual slavery for Imperial Japanese soldiers before and during World War II.  Now an activist seeking historical responsibility and an apology from Japan for what she and the approximately 200,000 so-called “Comfort Women” endured, she is traveling from Korea to Los Angeles especially to share her struggle for survival and justice.

Light refreshments will be served immediately following the program.



Event is full.

The program is co-sponsored by:

The Simon Wiesenthal Center,
the Korean American Forum of California,
The Korean Council for the Women Drafted for Military Sexual Slavery by Japan
and the War and Women’s Human Rights Museum
The Coalition to Abolish Slavery & Trafficking
