Ronny Herman de Jong, a Prescott author who survived three and a half years in Japanese concentration camps for women and children during World War II in the Pacific will give a Power Point Presentation and talk about her second book, Rising from the Shadow of the Sun: A Story of Love, Survival and Joy, from 11 a.m to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 16. Herman de Jongís book is partially based on her motherís camp journal, an eye-witness account of the living conditions of women and children under Japanese oppression. Part two of the book is about her life after the camps, totally different from her traumatic childhood experiences and equally fascinating. The final chapters of the book include the 2000 declassified Japanese War Crimes Files, the NARA files, indicating the orders to the Japanese army to kill all prisoners in all camps commencing in Sept. 1945 without verifiable evidence. Herman de Jongís inspiring message of overcoming adversity in life is evident in her writing and in her buoyant personality. She will have books available for signing at the presentation.
