About this Quote

Iris Chang's quote speaks to the lack of awareness of the atrocities committed by the Japanese during World War II. The "convenience females" were females and girls forced into sexual slavery, while Unit 731 carried out medical experiments on detainees of war. These occasions are not extensively understood in the United States, but that is starting to change. Books are being published that bring these stories to light, and more individuals are becoming aware of the scaries of the past. This increased awareness is essential for comprehending the history of the war and for honoring the victims of these atrocities. It is likewise a suggestion of the significance of standing up for human rights and never ever permitting such atrocities to take place again.
