Jan Ruff-O'Herne's powerful memoir of her time as a Japanese comfort woman during World War II and her journey to recovery and forgiveness.

Jan has been recognised by the Australian and Dutch governments and was awarded the 2002 RSL Anzac Peace Prize for her work on behalf of war-time sex slaves.

The long idyllic summer of Jan Ruff-O'Herne's childhood in Dutch colonial Indonesia ended in 1942 with the Japanese invasion of Java. She was interned in Ambarawa Prison Camp, along with her mother and two younger sisters. In February 1944, when Jan was 21, her life was torn apart. Along with nine other young women, all of them virgins, she was plucked from the camp and her family, and enslaved into prostitution by the Japanese Imperial Army. Download and start listening now!
