ADDITIONAL INFORMATION


Abstract: »Felicia Yap, in Chapter 2 on remembering war brutalities based on the memories of European and Asian women in Japanese-occupied territories, makes use of British government reports and the testimonies of English women to courts of law to demonstrate the two types of victim of Japanese aggression: those who were heard and those who were not listened to as they were only subjects of colonial rule and their well-being was not an issue.« (Source: Andrea Pető. »Part I: Commentary.« Gendered Wars, Gendered Memories: Feminist Conversations on War, Genocide and Political Violence.
