SDHF Newspetter No. 245 Mobilized workers from Korea

A Pronouncement on “mobilized workers from Korea”
at the UN Human Rights Council 41st session

July 25, 2019

The International Research Institute of Controversial Histories (iRICH) sent a mission to the UN Human Rights Council’s 41st session, held from June 24 to July 12, 2019, to make a statement concerning wartime workers mobilized from Korea. The mission consisted of three members: Mr. Matsuki Kunitoshi, Modern Korea Research Institute; Mr. Sakamoto, former “Battleship Island” resident and Mr. I U-yon, NAKSONDE Economic Research Institute (Korea). The pronouncement reflected several positions, of a Japanese Korean Researcher, a Japanese former resident of Battleship Island, which was called a hell for mobilized Korean workers, and a Korean economist.

Mr. Matsuki Kunitoshi made a presentation at the session:
