Statue honoring WWII-era sex slaves coming to Burbank

We've already had one in New Jersey, but now it looks like the West Coast is also going to get its own version of a memorial to the so-called "comfort women" of World War II.

A statue honoring these sex slaves, at least tens of thousands who were killed or brutalized when they were sent to Japanese frontline brothels, will go up in Burbank, a suburb of Los Angeles county famous for being the site of NBC studios.

Read more at The Los Angeles Times. I don't know what the California statue will look like, but below is a picture I took last year of the touching Comfort Women statue across the street from the Japanese embassy in Seoul.

  1. They made a correction to the headline...just an FYI, it will be in Central Park in Glendale, CA (which is next to Burbank anyways).
