The advertisement, which is more than 10 meters square, begins with the question “Do you remember?” and shows former German Chancellor Willy Brandt kneeling in apology for Nazi atrocities at a Jewish ghetto monument in Poland in the 1970s.
The sign says the action “promoted reconciliation in Europe.”
It continues: “In 2012, Korean women forced to work as sex slaves for Japanese soldiers … are still waiting for a heartfelt apology from Japan.”
The Japanese consulate apparently sent an official letter of protest to the advertising company that ran the ad. A futile move, no doubt.
