Frightening or Intense Scenes: Some of the descriptions of diseases contracted in the concentration camp may be upsetting to some readers. The scene of 10-12 year old boys being separated from their mothers to go to the men's work camp is very intense.

The shocking account of a 10-year old Norwegian girl, with her mother, sister and brother, of survival of malnutrition, disease, physical and mental abuse, and isolation in a Japanese concentration camp on the island of Java. Although the family survived, including the father, as the author presents in the "Afterword", the post-War years saw unraveling of the family's bonds largely as a result of their horrific wartime experiences.
