During the Second World War, thousands of Allied prisoners were incarcerated in Japanese internment camps throughout Asia. Many were children, and those who have survived bear the physical and psychological scars to this day. Many lost parents, and most witnessed scenes of bestial violence that no child should ever see. Drawing on their often harrowing testimony, this book tells how they were plucked from comfortable lives and thrown into appalling conditions, suffering disease, starvation and physical abuse.
