Statue remembering victims of Japan's wartime sexual slavery unveiled at U.S. Congress Updated: 2018-06-09 13:21:44 KST

A memorial to the women who were sexually enslaved by the Japanese military during World War II was unveiled at the Capitol Building in Washington this week.
The 'Statue of Peace' made a surprise appearance at the building's visitor center on Thursday.
The memorial was first installed last year at the Museum of Korean American Heritage in Manhattan.
It's designed to be moved from one place to the other for the purpose of spreading awareness throughout the U.S.
Historians estimate up to 200-thousand women, mostly from Korea, were forced to work in frontline brothels for Japanese troops during the war.
