Long road to justice for Japan's WWII "comfort women"

Long road to justice for Japan's WWII "comfort women"
In 1942, Jan O'Herne's nightmare began. She was captured by the Japanese in Java and was forced into sexual slavery as a ''comfort woman'' for the soldiers. Mrs O'Herne never told her friends and her children about her wartime rapes. "I felt so ashamed, so dirty, so soiled, so different, I didn't want anybody to know," she says. But with the help of her Catholic faith, she had long ago made peace with herself, forgiving the Japanese soon after the war ended for what they had done - Penelope Debelle
