My husband Matthew and I want to translate my book, Silenced No More, to help as many people as possible to understand the horrors of war so that it will never be repeated.
Kim Soon-Duk was 16 years old when she was deceived and offered a job as a nurse in Japan in the 1930s. Instead, she was taken from her village in Korea to a Japanese military brothel in Shanghai with 50 other teenaged girls. Kim was placed in a small stall where she was raped by dozens of Japanese soldiers a day over a 3-year-period. Overwhelmed with shame and terror, she tried to kill herself several times. Even decades later, when I met her at 80 years old in 2000 (photo below), she struggled with sickness and profound sadness and trauma.
