At the East Asian History Internship Session on January 2, 2013, interns learned and discussed about the conclusion of World War II, the war crimes tribunal, and the leftover issues from the war.

The interns learned the difference between the attitudes of Germany and Japan when disclosing their crimes, ‘comfort women’ apology and restoration problem, revisionist textbooks in the Japanese education system, reduced historical awareness, and other issues. The interns held a heated debate about the importance of educating history to the next generation.

This was the last session for the Fall 2012 semester. Interns will meet with victims to interview them and present it to the public in the coming weeks.
