A Town Like Alice

This is the story about Jean, who was English woman and was thrown into the World War II in Malaya. The Thirty-one English women and children, including Jean, were taken by Japanese as prisoner at Pangon, and were forced to keep on the move from area to area over six month. They totally have marched more than hundred miles, and half of them were dead. Then...

After I had read this story, I rearized that We Japanese are the victim of war and at the same time are the victimizer of war. I think that We must not only urge the banning of nuclear weapons in the name of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, we must atone for role in war in countries in Asia
