Resources for Educators: The Apology


The Apology, a documentary by Tiffany Hsiung, follows the journeys of three former “comfort women” who were among the 200,000 girls and young women kidnapped and forced into military sexual slavery by the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II. After decades of living in silence and shame about their past, the three “grandmothers”– Grandma Gil in South Korea, Grandma Cao in China, and Grandma Adela in the Philippines - share their lived experiences to ensure that this atrocity is not forgotten.

Created by POV, this collection of resources includes a discussion guide, lesson plan, and a reading list.
