More About Diary of a Teenage Girl by Elly Braicks
 
 
 
Overview
In her diary, 14-year-old girl Elly describes how the Japanese conquered the island kingdom of Dutch East Indies and incarcerated the Dutch after the bombing in 1942. Elly shares her experiences during the occupation; her camp life, liberation, the Bersiap time and the return to the Netherlands in 1946. She writes unadorned as a teenage girl which helped prevent attracting a write prohibition in the Japanese camp. She used every piece of paper that she could get her hands on for her diary. Elly Braicks was born in Surabaya, Dutch East Indies in September 1927. She was a secondary school student who loved to read books. She wasn't serious about writing when she began writing her diary during the war years in the Dutch East Indies. However, once she started, she found that she could not stop. The diary became an important part of her existence, until a normal family life was possible again after the war.
