Most of what I’ve read about WWII has been about Hitler’s domination and the horrible fate of the Jewish people. All I knew about Japan’s role in WWII was Pearl Harbor and Hiroshima. In this book the author writes about her childhood in Korea, growing up under the harsh control of the Japanese Imperialists. When WWII ends and it seems that everything will return to normal, the Soviets invade! Toward the end of the book I could not put it down. It’s incredible what some people have had to live through. This book is like the Asian version of Anne Frank
