Zusammenfassung

On scraps of paper hidden in her quarters, the author recorded the daily lives of those interned in Singapore's notorious Changi prison during World War II. On the one hand, these were years of wasted youth, on the other, they provided a rich learning experience in a community of close comradeship.

Diary of a Girl in Changi, 1941-45 Sheila Allan

In 1941, at the age of seventeen, Sheila Allan's life was plunged into a nightmare. For the next three and a half years she was a prisoner of the Japanese in Changi Prison and Sime Road Camp. This book is the moving personal account of a young girl living in the midst of hardship and adversity. Written on scraps of paper which were kept hidden in her quarters, Sheila Allan's diary is a record of the daily lives of those interned in Changi. On the one hand, these were years of wasted youth; on the other, they provided a rich learning experience in a community of close comradeship. Tolerance, humour and creativity, and above all, an undying hope for the future, colour her memories of this period. This new edition includes information on the Changi quilts. These embroidered squares, individually created and signed by the women internees, were sewn together into three separate quilts. The quilts can be seen at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra.
