The girls who had both parents at home
were released after gifting meat, food, and money
to the Japanese soldiers,
but my family couldn’t afford it.
Several days passed and my father gave the local leader.....
My father raised me. Japanese soldiers came and took many women. They only kept those who were 15 and 16 years-old among those women. Only myself and the other three were the ones.In order to avoid being raped by the Japanese soldiers, we searched for a way to escape from the yard.
The Japanese soldiers forced us into rooms and raped us. After they captured us, they did not give us enough water and food.

After returning home, I stayed in bed because we didn’t have money to go see a doctor. The villagers collected money for me, so I could go to the hospital. It took me half a year to feel better after taking the medicine called #606 (an injection).
My husband, who belonged to the Eighth Route Army, lost one of his arms when a Japanese bomb exploded. My husband died early from a stomach cancer, and I worked for a textile factory.
