As part of their education, my mother 1_____ her classmates had to watch newsreels of Japan's progress in the war. Far from being ashamed of their brutality, the Japanese vaunted it 2____ a way to inculcate fear. The films showed Japanese soldiers cutting people in half and prisoners tied to stakes being torn to pieces by dogs and being cut through their stomachs. There 3_____ lingering close-ups of the victims' terror-stricken eyes as their attackers came at them. The Japanese watched the eleven and twelve-year-old schoolgirls to make sure that they did 4____ shut their eyes or try to stick a handkerchief in their mouths to stifle their screams. My mother had nightmares 5_____ years to come.


During 1942, with their army stretched out across China, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific Ocean, the Japanese found themselves running short 6____ labor. My mother's whole class was conscripted to work in a textile factory, as were the Japanese children. The local girls had to walk 7_____ four miles each way; the Japanese children went by truck. The local girls got a thin gruel made from mouldy maize with dead worms floating in it; the Japanese girls had packed lunches 8_____ meat, vegetables, and fruit.


The Japanese girls had easy jobs, like cleaning windows. But the local girls had to operate complex spinning machines, 9______ were highly demanding and dangerous even for adults. Their main job was to reconnect broken threads while the machines were running at speed. If they did not spot the broken thread, 10____ reconnect it fast enough, they would be savagely beaten by the Japanese supervisor.


The girls were terrified. The combination of nervousness, cold, hunger, and fatigue led 11____ many accidents. Over half of my mother's fellow pupils suffered injuries. One day my mother saw a shuttle spin out of a machine and knock out the eye of the girl next to her. All the way to the hospital the Japanese supervisor scolded the girl 12____ not being careful enough.


After the long stint labour in the factory, my mother moved up 13_____ junior high school. Times had changed since my grandmother's youth, and young women were no longer confined to the four walls of their home. It was socially acceptable 14____ women to get a high school education. However, boys and girls received different educations. For girls the aim was to turn them 15_____ “gracious wives and good mothers”, as the school motto put it. They learned 16_____ the Japanese called “the way of a woman” looking 17_____ a household, cooking and sewing, the tea ceremony, flower arrangement, embroidery, drawing, and the appreciation of art. The single most important thing imparted was 18_____ to please one's husband. This included how to dress, how to do one's hair, how to bow, and, above all, how to obey, 19_______ question. As my grandmother put it, my mother seemed to have “rebellious bones,” and learned almost none of these skills, 20_____ cooking.
