The Philadelphia Peace Plaza is dedicated to countless girls and women from Asia, Oceania, and Europe who were victimized by the Japanese Imperial Army’s sexual slavery system from 1931 to 1945 during World War II. Starting in 1991, survivors broke the cycle of shame and silence to demand justice and urged the world to protect future generations of women from all forms of sexual violence.

The Statue of Peace, located at the heart of the plaza, is a bronze statue portraying a girl who was removed from her home and coerced into sexual slavery. On the base of the statue is a tiled mosaic which represents the girl’s shadow as an elderly woman; a reminder of time lapsed and the ongoing pursuit of justice for the survivors. The chair next to her invites visitors to sit with her in solidarity with the courage of the survivors and their allies’ calls for remembrance and justice.

As an open public space for contemplation and gathering, the plaza calls our attention to the often-silenced stories of survivors of sexual violence around the world and their resilient efforts to build a peaceful future. Standing in a city of refugees, immigrants, war survivors, and their descendants, the plaza welcomes all to start an open dialogue that will lead to true, lasting peace.
