Foreign Correspondents Ep.47 History in the movies
Japan's forced labor, seen through film 'The Battleship Island'

The highly anticipated movie of this summer, 'The Battleship Island'! The main reason why this movie became a hot topic, is because of the background of the movie is based on Japan's 'Hashima Island'. The Hashima Island, nicknamed 'The Battleship Island', due to its resemblance to a warship, was a place where Koreans were forced into labor in the 1940s. For the workers who had been exposed to toxic gases from a thousand kilometers of underwater coal mine, this was a hell of an island. In July 2015, Japan enlisted the Meiji era industrial facilities and the island, in the UNESCO World Heritage List. In the Korean government's protest, "We should not ignore history," it was decided that an intelligence center that informed about forced labor was to be established. However, the Japanese government has not taken any action for the past two years. 'The Battleship Island' is at the center of controversy. With the launch of this film, the Hashima Island, where the sad history of the Koreans were once buried, is now gaining attention again.

The different attitudes of Germany and Japan over history

It has been 72 years since World War II ended. In the meantime, a number of films based on the war crimes of Germany and Japan, the war crimes countries, have come out. But the reactions of Germany and Japan to these films are different. 'Schindler's List', a film about the German massacre of Jews. In 1998, the German government awarded a medal to Steven Spielberg, who directed 'Schindler's List'. It was because he had contributed in informing about the Jewish Holocaust. Meanwhile, Angelina Jolie's movie "Unbroken," released in 2014, was greatly criticized by Japanese extremists. Japanese extreme rightists opposed the screening of the film, saying that Japanese abuse of prisoners were false... as we give our in-depth discussion on 'history in movies'.
