Alison Parr - Memories of J Force

From Sunday Morning, 8:40 am on 22 April 2012

Alison Parr talks to Chris about her interviews with soldiers, airmen, nurses and members of the NZ Women's Auxiliary Corps about life in the enemy territory between 1946 and 1948 - and how wartime hostility and distrust gave way to understanding of the Japanese people. The Occupiers, by Alison Parr, is published by Penguin.
