8. At Shim Toh

Tuesday July 15, 2008

Traveling with the Taiwanese organization to "Shim Toh" ("A resting place" in Korean), an organized home where three Korean "comfort women" *halmunis are living in Seoul. The Taiwanese "comfort women" *ahmas from the "Taipei Women's Rescue Foundation" meet some of the surviving Korean grandmas. 

* "halmunis" in Korean, or "ahmas" in Taiwanese means "grandmas". (In Asia, elders are commonly referred to as grandmother or grandfather, whether you are related to them or not, as a way of showing respect.)
