Animated doc tells a sad tale from history

カナダ人大学院生Sam Decosteさんの中国語の教師とその友人は、捏造慰安婦の話を題材にした劇を作りました。 それを基にSam Decosteさんが’Mary & Myself’というアニメーションを作成。そのアニメーション作品が今、カナダ映画賞にノミネートされています。

賞が決まるのは2014年3月9日。受賞してしまうと、「第二次世界大戦中に、およそ20万人から50万人の女性が日本軍によって拉致されたか、あるいはだまされて強制的に毎日何十人もの日本兵相手に性行為をさせられ た。女性の多くは死に、苦しめられ、性感染症と外傷、トラウマから不妊になったなどという噓がまるで真実のようにカナダや世界に広まってしまいます。

日本の名誉を護る在カナダ邦人の会では、Samさんや彼女の大学院、カナダ映画賞の委員会に抗議を送り、受賞を阻止ししようと努力しています。皆様にもご協力いただきたく、住所、メアド、英文メッセージ例を以下に用意しました。皆様ご多忙のこととはお思いますが、一つでも多くメールやお手紙を送っていただき、応援・ご協力いただけますようお願い申し上げます。

Mary & Myself
Comfort Women
CSA Nomination

<本文 その1>
Ladies and Gentlemen:

I am writing in response to the nomination of Ms. Sam Decoste for a Canadian Screen Award for her short animated film Mary & Myself.
I would like to provide some information about the subject of that film which will likely surprise you. The standard story about “comfort women” being coerced into being sex slaves is not true, and the script that the actresses read in that movie is not based on fact.
I worry that if Mary & Myself wins the award, then more people will wrongly think that the ‘comfort women were sex slaves’ story on which it is based is true. That would unjustly tarnish Japan’s reputation in the world.
Despite many current claims to the contrary, there was no systematic coercion and entrapment of young women to work in brothels for the Japanese army before or during World War II. There were brothels, after all prostitution was not illegal there at the time, but they were filled with women recruited and hired as prostitutes.
There is lots of evidence of this in Japanese military records and also some in US military records. For example, below is a link to a report written in 1944 (ten months before the War’s end) by the U.S. Army.

http://nadesiko-action.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Japanese-Prisoner-of-War-Interrogation.pdf

The report summarizes information from the U.S. Army’s interrogation of some captured comfort women. They were “captured” and not “freed,” because they were with the Japanese Imperial Army in Burma fleeing from the advancing U.S. military.
The report makes clear that the women were recruited, were being well paid and were under no compulsion to stay or work.
The sex trade that exists wherever armed forces are located is a delicate subject matter in Asia and elsewhere, and causes various social problems. The Korean prostitutes who service the U.S military in South Korea are an issue ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prostitutes_in_South_Korea_for_the_U.S._military )as is the discrimination inflicted on the offspring of Vietnamese women and Korean soldiers born during the Vietnam War (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lai_%C4%90%E1%BA%A1i_H%C3%A0n ).
In any case, the story that comfort women were sex slaves and were coerced into that role is untrue. It is being trumpeted by groups in certain Asian countries for political and propaganda purposes and it is unfortunate that the script on which the film Mary & Myself is based on such untruths.
I would like the Academy to consider and discuss this matter objectively and diligently before the award winner is chosen.

Sincerely,

日本語要約:Sam DecosteさんのMary & MyselfがCanadian Screen Awardにノミネートされた件についてメールしております。Mary & Myselfのテーマについて重要な情報を提供する必要があると存じます。一般的な慰安婦の話は捏造であり、このアニメーションで声優が読んだ台本は史実に基づいていません。Mary & Myselfが受賞した場合、史実でないことが史実のように誤解され、日本の名誉を毀損する内容が世界中に広まるのではないかと怖れています。それに関する証拠を提供します。それは1944年の米軍による慰安婦の尋問の記録です。こちらがそのコピーです。(URL省略)このレポートはビルマで捕えられた(開放されたのではなく)慰安婦を米軍が尋問したものの要約です。慰安婦たちは公募で高給取りで、強制されていたわけではないことが明記されています。風俗は軍隊の存在するいかなる所にもあり、微妙な主題で、様々な社会問題を引き起こします。洋公主やライダイハンなど。とにかく、慰安婦が日本軍によって強制された性奴隷だという話は虚偽であり、政治的な宣伝目的のため、あるアジアの国々のグループによって吹聴されています。残念ながらMary & Myselfの台本はその虚偽に基づいています。貴映画協会におきましては、カナダ映画賞をお決めになる前にこのようなことを客観的かつ念入りに考慮していただきたく存じます。

Ladies and Gentlemen:

I hope this email finds you all in excellent health.
I am writing in response to the nomination of Ms. Sam Decoste for a Canadian Screen Award for her short animated film Mary & Myself.
I feel it is necessary to provide some important information about the film’s subject matter. The standard story presently circulating about “comfort women” is not accurate, and the script that the actresses read in the film is not based on fact.
I worry that if Mary & Myself wins the award, then more people will wrongly think that the ‘comfort women were sex slaves’ story on which it is based is true. That would unjustly tarnish Japan’s reputation in the world.

There were brothels, after all prostitution was not illegal there at the time, but they were filled with women recruited and hired as prostitutes.
The following link is to a US news program about comfort women which reveals the true story.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0goL88N8pQE

As the interviewee, Mr. Komori, states the Japanese army as a matter of policy never coerced the recruitment of young women in Asia. The army did have a system of brothels established for the soldiers, but with a few exceptions, women were recruited for them through advertisements and third parties. The women were paid by the individual soldiers and were well paid by the economic standards of the time. Such a system of brothels is an uncomfortable subject in the present moral climate, but in those days prostitution was legal in many parts of Asia.
In any case, the Japanese government and successive Prime Ministers have acknowledged the wrongdoing of the past, including organizing the brothel system, and apologized.
Unfortunately some groups in certain Asian countries either ignore those apologies or insist they are not sufficient.
I would like the Academy to consider and discuss this matter objectively and diligently before the award winner is chosen.
Sincerely,

とにかく日本政府と歴代の首相は、売春宿などのシステムを管理したことを認め、謝罪しました。残念ながらあるアジアの国々は日本の謝罪を無視するか、十分ではないと主張しています。貴映画協会におきましては、カナダ映画賞をお決めになる前にこのようなことを客観的かつ念入りに考慮していただきたく存じます。

    Every news I read, I always reach this issue.
    I read one of news that Japan left 53 million dollars in Korea right after World War II and Japanese government gave Korea more than 10 million dollars to support Korean Economy in 1965 when Japan and Korea opened their door each other as a friend allied. Japan gave Korea 65 million dollars at least. Japan helped Korea to be civilized. Korea should realize who supported them the most. Korea just wants more money from Japan again to rebuild their bad economy. The Korean President tries to switch Korean people’s anger and dissatisfaction against the political crisis to Japan, not to her.

    Now Korean and other people supporting Korea is changing their propaganda of the ugly statute for the prostituted Koran women. The propaganda is for all women freedom in the world. If so, why Korean has to mention what Japanese did in the past, more than 60 years ago? The statute and the animation describing the ugly not true story is just the symbol of ” Hatred ” to cause race discrimination in the world .
    Do we need the kind of propaganda? What is the Korean or Chinese doing for? They should live now, not more than 60 years ago. The statute is bad for example pf Education for children in the world to create or increase ” Hatred “.

    Korean supporting the statute and the animation is making embarrassed themselves because they believe in the wrong history which they were isntructed. Korean women are still doing prostitute trips for Money in the world. Korean people should stop the kind of the Korean women first.

    Anyway, we should support the following group, GAHT and watch the program.

    I would request that Ms. Sam Decoste and the other members of the Master of Fine Arts program look more deeply into the comfort women story and not be fooled by the lies now being circulated.
