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 along with her family in a prison camp, and then, in February 1944, when she was 21, she was enslaved into prostitution by the Japanese Imperial Army. This is her story of how, with her faith and her courage, she survived that experience but then, like all other women forced into the "comfort stations", she was shamed into silence for 50 years.
