"Jan Ruff-O-Hernes childhood came to an abrupt end with the Japanese invasion of Java in March 1942. Jan, her mother and two younger sisters, along with three thousand women and children, were imprisoned by the Japanese in Ambararwa Prison Camp. In February 1944, when Jan was 21 years old, her life was torn apart when, with nine other young women, all of them virgins, she was removed from the camp and forced into a brothel to become a military sex slave for the Japanese. She was repeatedly abused, beaten and raped with threats that her family would be killed if she revealed the truth about the atrocities inflicted upon her. "--Provided by publisher.
