CJ Kim has been recording KACE’s activities since 2006 during its campaign for the Comfort Women Resolution in Washington, DC. Kim created this documentary to encourage the Korean American community to have interest in this internship.

About forty senior citizens were present at the screening and many of them participated in the fundraising drive. $141.00 was collected and one senior citizen urged KACE to help set the history straight.

The purpose of this internship is to record and organize the testimonies of the victims of atrocities committed by Japan during World War II and distribute the content to public schools in the United States.

KACE is planning the screening of this documentary at other locations as well. If your organization is interested, please feel free to contact KACE.
