On July 25, 2012, Korean American Civic Empowerment (KACE) visited the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
 
While studying the "Comfort Women" issue and searching for the  possible resolution, KACE interns learned a terrifying news that happened during World War II. A disasterous news was conducted under the Nazi regime; Holocaust was a massacre of Jews and political prisoners who were categorized as "dissidents". Like the "Comfort Women" issue, they put nail in the survivors' chest, which could not be removed. German Government formally apologized for the tragic later on. 
 
KACE interns reconsidered about not only Japanese Government's continuous denial, but also how to solve the "Comfort Women" human rights issue.
 
After visiting the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, KACE interns visited one of the civic organization called, Amnesty International. Director Kumar invited KACE interns and the suvivors and were able to listen to survivor's vivid testimony. 
 
Interns felt stronger about the survivors' resentment and bitterness. Grandmother Young Soo Lee requests that this problem would not happen in the future, and thanks the interns' hard effort.
