South Korean Cartoonists to Exhibit Cartoons on Japan’s Wartime Atrocities

A group of South Korean cartoonists will exhibit their works depicting Japan’s past wartime atrocities at a French cartoon festival later this year, local groups said on Sunday.

A total of 33 South Korean cartoonists are planning to exhibit about 50 comic strips at the international comics festival to be held at St. Just-le-Martel in September, according to the Institute for Research in Collaborationist Activities and the Association of Korea Editorial Cartoon.

The annual festival marks its 33rd year this year and draws more than 800 cartoonists from around the world.

During the 10-day cartoon festival, a forum will be held at a nearby village with victims of Nazi Germany and Japan’s wartime sexual enslavement, according to the South Korean groups.
