Abstract: »The "comfort women" system implemented by the Japanese government and army during World War II is a planned and organized national war crime. Hundreds of thousands of women in colonies and invaded countries lost the minimum dignity and personal freedom, and were forced to serve as sexual slaves of the Japanese army, that is, "comfort women". At the same time, the issue of "comfort women" system is still a legacy of war that has been shelved for a long time after World War II. The Japanese government and army also understand that this system is a shameless act that violates international law, gender ethics and humanity, so the Japanese government and army generally adopted quite secret supervision and management measures in wartime. In addition, before the defeat, Japan organized the destruction of the archives of "comfort women" and the "intentional" non-opening of related documents after the war, and shirked its responsibility for the war and pleaded not guilty, which greatly delayed the settlement of the problem of "comfort women". Based on the historical data, Japanese soldiers' recollection and the testimony of the victims of the "comfort women" system, this paper tries to find out the relevant historical facts of the implementation and operation of the Japanese "comfort women" system and analyze the national responsibility that the Japanese government should bear on this issue.« (Source: Frontiers in Business, Economics and Management)
