On August 30, Yonhap reported that Li Hongda, a victim of “comfort women”, died the day before yesterday at the age of 97. According to justice memory, Li Xuda was born in 1923. In 1940, at the age of 17, Li Hongda was forcibly taken to a “comfort center” in Taiwan by Japanese soldiers. He did not return to his hometown until the end of World War II. She has participated in the “Wednesday rally” for many times and made a public voice on the international stage, exposing the crimes committed by the Japanese army and demanding an apology for the Japanese army’s forced recruitment of comfort women during World War II.
