Last quote by Barbara Mottershaw

Each day the prisoners were given a bowl of rice. It was pretty disgusting stuff and never enough, but somehow he became friends with this boy. The boy offered him what was in his own lunch box and from that day on they shared his meal. Everyone knows about the cruelty that went on during the war and I do not want to water down other people's experiences or excuse what happened back then, but there are also stories of great kindness among ordinary Japanese people and those are so rarely heard. I hope that we are able to find this man so I can tell him
