To those of you who are working with the "comfort women" and their
I just received the following email via the H-Japan list regarding a
planned "tribunal" in Japan to examine, among other things, Allied
complicity through a failure to prosecute for the crimes. You may
be aware of it, but if not perhaps you can be of some mutual assistance
the group undertaking the tribunal.
I claim no knowledge of the group undertaking the tribunal, by the way.
Feel free to enlighten me if you so desire...

Subject: H-Japan (E): Q. re: "Comfort Women" and Allies' Role

Question re "Comfort Women" and Allies' Non-Prosecution
In December 2000, there will be an historic Women's Tribunal in Tokyo to
try Japanese officials for international crimes involved in the
of the so called "comfort" women by the Japanese Army, prior to and
the second world war.
We need to know why these crimes, which were documented by the Allies
not prosecuted in the International Military Tribunal for the Far East.
This is a matter that implicates the complicity of the Allies--whether
the peace table or within the Tribunal.
We are seeking information--and, if necessary, welcoming anyone who
like to make this a very quick research project. If the information
be developed in the next two months, there is a possibility that it
be brought into the Tribunal process in some way.
Please respond to Molly Graver at email: mgccrt at earthlink.net
