毎日、毎分のように日本兵に暴行され
戦地を連れ回された従軍慰安婦にさせられた人達。

▲ Iyoh, b. 1924, Baros, West Java.
Iyoh worked as a cleaning lady
in a Japanese household.
A member of the Japanese military,
who was a steady visitor there,
regularly assaulted the female personnel.
He entered Iyoh's room regularly, too,
and raped her so brutally that she
sustained internal injuries.
She decided to run and hid in a nearby
factory barracks, where girlfriends nursed her.
"I didn't dare go home. I was afraid that
my dad would find out I was raped.
I didn't want that."
Fairly soon after the war she married
the love of her life.
"He was my cousin, I had gotten
pregnant by him, we loved each other."
They had 11 children together,
seven of whom are still alive.
"My children take care of me since my
husband died. I've had to work hard
enough in the past."
She never talks about the war anymore,
not with her old girlfriends from the factory,
either. © Jan Banning

▲ Wainem, b. 1925, Mojogedang, Central Java.
Wainem was taken from home and
forced into prostitution, first in Solo for a
year and then for two years in Yogyakarta.
During the day in a warehouse, she had
to weave mats with other women and
cook her own food

自分たちが苦しんだことのみをテレビ、
映画、新聞で言い続ける日本。

他国の人達を苦しめたことは、言わない。
侵略したのは、日本なのに。
