In 2010 a monument was built in the New York City suburb of Palisades Park, New Jersey, dedicated to Comfort Women—who claimed that they were forced into sexual slavery by Japanese soldiers during World War II. In July 2013, a second memorial was built in Glendale, California. South Korea brought further controversy to the Japanese with its support of China, when South Korean President, Park Geun-hye requested China build a memorial to Korean independence (anti-Japanese) activist and nationalist, An Jung-geun―the individual who assassinated Ito Hirobumi, a four-time Prime Minister of Japan and former Resident-General of Korea in 1909. Ito Hirobumi was an important political figure who allied with Korea for protection against Russian domination during the Russo-Japanese War.
This book contains interviews with the spirit of An Jung-geun and the guardian spirit of President Park. Through these conversations, Ryuho Okawa attempts to reveal the truth behind the assassination of Ito Hirobumi. An Jung-geun is still hailed as a hero by the South Korean government, and the assassination of Ito Hirobumi was considered a patriotic act. These interviews open new perspectives on these historical events, disclosing how they may not have served the Korean people at all. Okawa shares these interviews with the hope that he can bring a greater understanding of justice to the international community.
