One girl's experience in a Japanese P.O.W Camp
By Gerarda Bossard

Gerarda Bossard was in her early teens in 1943 when the Japanese army swarmed through the Dutch East Indies and took her, along with her mother and two sisters, prisoner.

For three years she suffered on indescribably painful and humiliating existence as a prisoner of war under a heartless and brutal Japanese regime. Her father, meanwhile, was also captured by the Japanese and suffered terribly.

Now, forty years on since her arrival in New Zealand, Gerarda Bossard has decided to tell her story: "P.O.W - One girl's experience in a Japanese P.O.W Camp."

Remarkably, virtually nothing is known or has been written about the camp and its 1700 inhabitants - now people can know and judge for themselves whether calls for an official apology and compensation are warranted.
