On an immediate level, they mention lack of food and medical supplies, filthy conditions, cruelty and death but on a collective level they speak retrospectively in terms of resentment, stoicism, resistance and resourcefulness.

Furthermore, as the camps were largely purpose-built structures in dense jungle there are underlying frontier themes relating to Europeans surviving in alien environments. As Australian military historian Hank Nelson has noted, public and scholarly focus on such extreme cases as Bangka Island is understandable but it produces several problems.

An unbalanced account is created which fails to contextualise the overall POW experience and neglects equally valid prisoner testimonies. As a result, somewhat radical conclusions are drawn, for example the assumption that the Japanese, because of cultural and military conditioning, were more likely to abuse their prisoners.

Furthermore, ongoing scholarship is likely to reinforce these parameters, particularly as new testimonies are recorded and ex-POWs become unwilling to contradict existing evidence because of a desire to preserve established preconceptions or an unwillingness to disparage the dead.

Thanks to the efforts of the International Committee of the Red Cross and testimony from those who fled Singapore, the Australian government knew that a significant number of AANS nurses were imprisoned on Sumatra.

Between February and September , the press ran regular stories on the missing nurses and when they were finally liberated, ABC war correspondent Haydon Lennard organised a plane specifically to collect them. Such intense international attention would naturally affect how the nurses related their experiences. The nurses themselves did not begin to produce memoirs until the early s, when a market for POW memoirs had already been well established by their male counterparts.

Published at the height of the White Australia policy, these works are often overly simplistic in their narrative and racially inappropriate, frequently describing a duality between the animalistic and the human when characterising their Japanese tormentors.

Aside from reflecting wider cultural trends, it is important to remember that attempts to dehumanise and vilify the enemy are established coping strategies for those emerging from traumatic encounters. The circumstances that produced these memoirs seem to have gone unrecognised by nursing historians, and current scholarship is still largely biographical in nature. Most recently, the Sumatran nurses have found a place in Japanese scholarship regarding military comfort women.

Through re-examining documents released by the Japanese government in the s as well as archives in Holland and Australia, scholars such as Yoshimi Yoshiaki and Yuki Tanaka have sought to demonstrate that these nurses were forced into prostitution as part of a government-controlled system that provided Japanese servicemen with comfort women.

At present, it is clear that the experiences of the nurses on Sumatra have been employed by highly politicised historiographies, and this has created a popular memory that is in some ways more powerful than the experiences themselves.

This situation is similar to what happened to male POW scholarship in the s, when quasi-fictional works such as Bridge over the River Kwai mythologised the POW experience to the point where it eclipsed and undermined the testimony of ex-prisoners. Sister Berenice idolised Bishop Scharmach: Lorna was convinced he was a collaborator. The tiny mission became a setting for betrayal, heroism and death. And all the normal rules of war were broken.

The Sisters War

After six months, Lorna and Sister Berenice were separated. The Australian nurses were sent to Yokohama as part of a prisoner exchange. But the exchange program collapsed and the nurses found themselves trapped in wartime Japan, freezing and ravaged by disease. At the same time Sister Berenice, Bishop Scharmach and the nuns were taken to a dark, uninhabited jungle valley where they would be safe from air raids.

Stefania, the older sister, last year shared a podium with President Clinton at the opening of the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington. The story begins in during the German occupation.

Stefania, then 16, found herself working in the Polish city of Przemysl. Her father had died before the war began, and her mother and brother had been pressed into German labor camps. Stefania started by smuggling food into the city's Jewish ghetto to the family that had once been her employer.

Then came the day she decided to hide the first of the Jews, a young man who had escaped from a train headed for the death camps. His name was Max Diamant. In later years, he would change his name to Josef Burzminski and he would become Stefania's husband of 50 years.

As time passed, Diamant asked Stefania to hide others, and still others heard about the haven and showed up at the doorstep. German nurses were in the apartment next door, and there were long periods of absolute silence among those hiding in the cramped attic. Each knock at the door brought another surge of fear.

Stefania's task each day was to gather enough food for her wards without arousing suspicion.
