Japan Attempts to Distort Wartime Sex Slave Contents in US Textbooks

Japanese government and an ultra-rightist group have worked systematically to distort the contents related to Japan's wartime sex slaves in United States school textbooks.
 
According to sources in Washington, Meisei University professor Shiro Takahashi, who is a member of a society that makes the new historical textbooks that have lead to the distortion found in Japan's school textbooks, has been confirmed by his recent contribution in English that he visited the United States late last year to explore the public opinion related to the issue of comfort women.
 
Takahashi personally researched the eight memorial monuments and statues installed across the United States that honor sex slavery victims. He reported the result to Japan's consul general in New York and discussed their future plans together.
 
The professor asked U.S. publisher McGraw-Hill to "correct" a school textbook that describes World War II sex slaves as gifts from the Japanese Emperor.
 
In mid-December, Japan's consulate general in New York asked McGraw-Hill executives to make a correction in the content of their textbook.
