Jan Ruff O'Herne, war-rape victim of the Imperial Japanese Army, died on August 19th, aged 96 

簡·拉夫·奧赫恩是日本帝國軍隊的戰爭強奸受害者,她于8月19日去世,享年96歲。

All sorts of objects lay in Jan Ruff O'Herne's dressing tabledrawer. A necklace of dark amber beads. Silver work from Java where she had been brought up, the daughter of Dutch colonialists. A belt embroidered with tulips from the country she had never seen until after the war. Costume jewellery, gloves, lotions and potions. Her daughters Eileen and Carol loved to riffle through the drawer as children, and she gladly let them.
各種各樣的東西都放在簡·拉夫·奧赫恩梳妝臺的抽屜里。一條琥珀色的項鏈。還有來自她小長大的爪哇島的銀飾品,她是荷蘭殖民者的女兒。一條繡著郁金香的腰帶,是她在戰后才看到的。服裝珠寶,手套,乳液和藥劑。她的女兒艾琳和卡羅爾小時候喜歡在抽屜里翻來翻去,她很樂意讓她們這樣做。

The things often summoned up her Java stories of gamelans, sate-sellers, cicadas and warm rain. But when one day they found the embroidered white handkerchief folded at the bottom she snatched it away. That was a rare moment, in 50 years of silence, when her secret was almost out. Other things she could disguise as phobias. Her unease when night fell, and she had to draw the living-room curtains. Her terror of going to doctors, even when she was quite ill. And, perhaps hardest to explain, her dislike of flowers.
這些東西經常讓她想起她在爪哇島的故事,故事里有加麥蘭樂器,各種商品,蟬鳴聲和溫暖的雨。但是有一天,他們發現了底部折著的繡花白手帕,她便把它奪了過去。在50年的緘默中,這是一個罕見的時刻,她的秘密幾乎被公之于眾。她還可以偽裝成恐懼癥。夜幕降臨時,她感到不安,她不得不拉上客廳的窗簾。她害怕去看醫生,甚至是她非常病重的時候。還有可能是最難解釋的一件事,她不喜歡花。

On her birthday she would beg friends and family not to give her any. They were such a waste of money, so soon over. But this was not the reason. Flowers reminded her of the day in 1944, in a rambling house in Semarang, when she and six other Dutch-Indonesian girls realised that the place they had been abducted to was a Japanese military brothel. The Japanese had invaded Indonesia two years before, driving all the Dutch settlers into labour camps where they were kept in squalor, close to starvation.
生日的時候,她會求朋友和家人不要給她送花。買花就是浪費錢,花那么快就凋謝了。但是這不是她不喜歡花的理由;〞屗肫1944年的一天,在三寶壟一間雜亂的房子里,她和其他六名荷蘭-印尼女孩意識到她們被綁架到了一家日本軍隊妓院。日本人曾在兩年前入侵印度尼西亞,把所有的荷蘭移民都趕進了勞改營,他們被關在骯臟的地方,幾乎要被餓死。
