Inhaltsangabe: This is a fascinating chronicle based on the detailed diary of Netty Herman, a courageous Dutch mother, who records the horrors and desperation of life with her two young daughters, Ronny and Paula, in World War II Japanese concentration camps for women and children on Java; and the inspiring story of Ronny's journey from a childhood in captivity in Southeast Asia in the 1940s to peace and prosperity in the United States in the 21st century.
When my first book, In the Shadow of the Sun, based on my mother's journal and published in 1992, was out of print, but people kept asking me for more copies, I realized that the subject of women's suffering in Japanese concentration camps during WWII in the Pacific was unknown to many.
People in general know a lot about WWII in Europe, the Holocaust, and about the military war effort in the Pacific, but virtually nothing about the civilian camps for men, women and children and the cruel treatment of the prisoners by the Japanese Imperial Army in Southeast Asia.
When I found out about the NARA Files, the top secret Japanese War Crimes Files declassified in the year 2000, I knew I had to re-tell the story and add this valuable information for the whole world to know. The 1942 liquidation plan of the Japanese Ministry of War was stated in Exhibit O : Death for all prisoners of war in all camps in occupied Southeast Asia, to commence in September of 1945. That meant my life was saved by the bombs! I herewith thank all the veterans and deceased military who fought so courageously and gave their lives for the rescue we so desperately kept hoping and praying for.
Rising from the Shadow of the Sun, an autobiographical historical memoir, if I may call it that, details my mother's love and our survival of the concentration camps followed by vignettes of the wonderful, joyous life that has befallen me since.
At the time of its publication in March of 2011, my dear Mamma was 101 years old and very happy that our second book had seen the light. She received the very first copy.
