雷桂英生於1928年,9歲時遭到日軍強暴,13歲被騙至當時日本人開辦的一家「慰安所」,一年半後逃脫。

這段非人生活給雷桂英的身上留了多處嚴重傷痕,並失去生育能力。她在60多年來一直對這段往事守口如瓶。直到去年4月才在養子說服下,把個人遭遇公 開,指證日軍在南京犯下的滔天罪行。 她生前表示,當年在「慰安所」中她是年齡最小的一名。很多十七八歲的少女在遭受日軍輪番凌辱後失血過度喪命,有的則直接被殘忍殺害。

  1. 雷桂英婆婆蒙天主寵召

    婆婆早日安息主懷

    請為雷婆婆祈禱

  2. 唉﹐真唏噓﹗再聽你們重温麥之華去年探訪雷婆婆那片段﹐心裡很不舒服添﹗(聲聲嘆..)

    至於說到日本佬跟美國佬的什麼「道歉」和「接受道歉」﹐只能「啤」一聲。真攞命。真不知這是什麼世界。

    聽你們於節目中提及李碧華寫另一位慰安婦 – 袁竹林婆婆的故事﹐對﹗那確是一本好書﹐值得推介給各位網友。李碧華的《煙花三月》﹐寫得非常好。

  3. 死o架仔,冇好死,8+26 !

  4. 慢感人兄: Ditto, but what is 8+26?

  5. 唏﹐又到我呢D粗口專家出場喇﹗呵呵呵
    求丙﹐係o架文黎呀! baka yarou﹐相等於廣東話嘅’死蠢’﹐死xx(use your imagination!)咁上下啦﹐哈哈。

  6. 唉 (我這是東施效顰, 回應笑騎騎, 放毒蛇君的歎息), 但我這歎息不是為雷婆婆或其他慰安婦而發, 而是為我們日益強大(指經濟和財力)祖國的現政府.
    雷婆婆坎坷的一生, 在冥冥中, 必會還她公道. 她遭逢大劫, 卻能保持對人生的希望, 收養兩名子女, 撫養成人, 她不枉此生. 從佛教的觀點來看, 她所受的苦和所積的功德, 與她前世有關和影響她的後世. 從天主教的觀點來看, 她的堅忍和善行, 在天的父必會給她應得的賞報, 主已將她接回祂那裏去, 不用再受人間的苦楚. 所以我不會為她歎息, 我只會為她祝福和慶賀.
    我卻要為我們祖國的現政府歎息. 它為這群曾被外國欺凌的女兒做過什麼? 它曾試圖向欺侮她們的人討回公道嗎? 它有在經濟和精神上給予她們支持嗎? 面對這個吸收了我們不少文化, 不獨毫無感戴之心, 反而為滿足侵略野心而做出禽獸不如行為的鄰國, 噤若寒蟬. 執政者每每搬出什麼顧全大局的藉口, 勸喻(如果不是迫使)國民忍辱負重. 我們的辱實在忍得太久了. 況且這個欺善怕惡的鄰國, 對他們忍讓只會令其更看不起你, 你對他們強硬和擊倒他們, 他們卻會佩服和祟拜你. 君不見他們的首相竟向美國(美國人曾打敗他們)道歉! 有多少美國婦女曾當慰安婦呢? 對傷害我們女性同胞最深的這個國家(他們的心底裏, 從不認為我國曾打敗他們), 他們又是什麼嘴臉?
    祖國的領導們, 在我們為經濟起飛沾沾自喜, 為成為一級大國充滿企盼的同時, 我們是否應建立大國的風範, 不欺人, 卻也不能被欺. 否則那只可能成為一個國際暴發戶, 滿身銅臭, 唯利是從之九流國家而己.

  7. 人間慘劇。

    每次戰爭受害嘅首先係平民百姓,不過唸落啲軍人其實都係間接嘅受害者。佢哋應征前都係平民百姓,因為戰爭而入伍,遠離父母妻兒。喺戰場上又要拼個你死我活,經常今日唔知聽日事,想來當兵嘅日子都幾難捱。好多罪行想來都係因為戰場上失咗人性所致。不時聽到有老兵去中國謝罪就明白正常情況下人總有自省之心特別係人老之后。人之將死其言也善都講得幾啱。記得曾參加游擊隊打日本仔嘅老人講過日軍好有禮,軍紀好巖。我唸呢個應該系喺冇戰事嘅時候先致會係咁。

    奇連依仕活嘅《硫磺島戰書》及《戰火旗幟》係分別由交戰雙方嘅角度講述硫磺島戰役嘅電影。戰爭嘅悲哀正係雙方無論勝敗對錯都只係觀點與角度嘅差異。只可惜唔知人類幾時先可以遠離戰爭。

    我哋對道歉可話情有獨鐘,可惜政治家嘅道歉只係show一場,而一句道歉并唔代表咩嘢。第一次聽到“愛你嘅鄰居,愛你嘅敵人”係喺鄭裕玲同田北辰做嘅訪談節目。覺得呢種語氣似係聖經多過佛經。美國人可以原諒趙承熙想來主要係基于基督嘅寬恕而唔是佢家姐嘅道歉。如能令到個心舒服啲嘅話無異係精神嘅靈藥,總比苦等一句唔知有咩用嘅道歉來得實在。

  8. 開玩笑君:

    我十分欽佩你的冷靜和寬仁, 亦同意軍人在戰爭中也是受害者. 但我想提出以下數點作回應:

    1. 我們是指責發動戰爭的國家, 不是它的軍人.
    2. 軍人在戰爭中殺敵是責任, 但也不能濫殺和用不仁道的方法去殺.
    3. 你所說軍人在戰爭中面對的苦況和壓力, 我們都能瞭解, 但也不能以此來為所作的暴行開脫, 只要他們在進行暴行時, 不是精神錯亂, 他們就要負上所犯罪行的責任.
    4. 戰爭固然不是以勝敗來分對錯, 但也不是完全不能分對錯, 發動侵略戰爭的國家肯定是錯, 願意反省的國家(如德國) 是會認錯的. 所以戰爭的對錯, 不一定是觀點與角度的問題. 所以有識之士是不會在戰爭的問題上, 盲目支持自己的國家.
    5. 口頭道歉對受害人是沒有實質作用, 但聽到誠懇的道歉, 總會在精神上得來一些補償. 而那個犯錯者, 不主動道出誠懇的欺意不說, 在受害人強烈要求下, 仍不願意這樣做. 唯一的原因是, 那犯錯者壓根兒沒有認為自己曾做錯了. 我們繼續要求它道歉, 其實是為它好, 要它真心承認所犯的過錯, 那它將來再犯的機會便會減少了. 可惜日本政府不識好人心.
    6. 我理解基督所說誰打了你的左臉, 也轉過右臉來給他打的意思, 不是要縱容犯錯的人. 愛你敵人/仇人的最高層次的表現, 是要令他們認識自己的過錯, 從而改過. 基督教導我們的主旨是: 不要用以牙還牙的方式, 勉強犯錯者認錯, 那麼做只會適得其反, 他明明知道是錯也會死口不認. 祂要我們用和平的方法, 感化犯錯者, 令他真正知道自己是做錯了. 所以我認為, 要求道歉與基督寛恕的精神沒有衝突. 那只是因為日本政府還未能真正認識自己所曾犯的罪行, 我們才需要負起這個十字架, 苦口婆心時向它勸說而已.

  9. 唔該哂, 笑兄, 不過諗吓諗呀, 其實都係唔多關o架仔事, 都係我衰 (等我攬哂上身得喇), 餵飽咗呢隻…呀..呢隻….畜牲, 唔係佢哋又點會咁譊張呢, 因為:

    揸車: 一定要買Toyota/Lexus/Honda/Acura, 又平, 又正, 又靚, 又襟 (重要問係咪 Made in Japan 架?)

    電視: 打死都唔會買 RCA, 一定要買 Sony 先夠「照」

    相機: 唔係 Nikon 都要買 Canon, 講少冇咁早, 買部 Polaroid?

    Printer: 唔係 Epson, Canon, 就要買 Panasonic
    (總之冇乜邊樣電器唔係日本牌子喇!)

    餐館: 好多時要食日本餐, 第日重可能唔係certified 唔去o添!

    動畫: 淨係睇o架仔畫嘅先好睇。 千與千尋呀, final fantasy 呀…

    瓦㷛: 大陸做 $7 唔買, 要買 $30 日本制造, 驚大陸嘢食咗幾年後先知中招

    唉…雷安婆婆, 如果你寃魂不散, 飛過嚟揀死獨孤求丙, 消咗啖氣先可以投胎嘅話呢, 呢條頸就喺 65號, XX 街, Markham,Ontario LxS 4×2…

  10. 唔好意思, 又俾塊手寫板出賣咗, 喺雷婆婆, 唔係雷安婆婆。 雷婆婆: 連您個名都寫錯, 又多個理由過o黎揀死獨孤某喇!

  11. Sorry, 瓦㷛 meant 瓦 pot (pronounced bowl), another non-displayable Chinese character here.

  12. 我不同情死o架仔,冇咁多人支持認同,斑政客怎敢說如此冇人性說話。
    政客不扮好人扮無恥,只因為支持他們的人大多是無恥之人。
    一定有報應的,日本出生率一年比一年低,抵佢哋冇仔生,4仔市場又如日方中,…

  13. 政治不能以個人的倫理來審評, 政治只看利益. 所以要求政客以個人的倫理道理標準去處理政治事務, 那簡直是不設實際, 徒費精力而已. 所以, 只有在日本的當權者明白到承認以往的罪行和向受害者真誠的道歉, 是對他們的國家是有利益的. 他們才會這樣做. 現在最困難是要那些當權者明白, 那些利益是在精神方面, 對其國民有好處, 可治療其民族的傷口, 向精神健康方向邁進, 使他們的國家真正的強大, 而不只是經濟強國. 可惜一般政客只看實際利益, 看得見精神利益的非要具氣魄的政客家不行. 要像日本這島國上自卑又自大的民族, 出現具氣魄的政治家, 真是談何客易啊!

  14. 求丙兄:

    When I read one of your messages posted with another thread saying that you would try to refrain from dumping too much of your negative sentiments on this blog, I had a little worry about a change in your style of writing. Although your playful writing to ask Granny Lei to take revenge on you is not as sarcastic as those of your previous writings, the intention to ask your readers to introspect their attitude toward Japanese products can still be apprehended. Please let your readers continue to get your constructive criticisms. We want a 獨狐求丙 not one more世故求讚 whom we have already had too many?

  15. Very insightful analyses by 一聽眾, I could not agree more with what you’ve already said.

    Japan unlike Germany committed war crimes but they’ve yet refused to face with the “truth". It could not get more disgusting than PM Abe apologizing to President Bush in the U.S. If the Japanese government had been really serious about apologizing, Abe could have passed a motion in the Parliament to formally apologize to the Chinese people. Every member of Parliament is encouraged to vote (free vote) in order to legitimize the representation of the apology. In addition, Abe could have backed his words with appropriate actions (i.e. revealing and admitting to other military’s inhumanity and atrocities, revising historical books to reflect the actual events, installing programs to educate the young about its past).

    However, that will not happen. Why?

    From a cultural standpoint (read the following as if you were not a Chinese or…);

    The Japanese acknowledged that they were only defeated by the Americans and not by the Chinese in the WII. To them, whatever atrocities occurred during the war was inevitable and understandable. It’s inconceivable for the Japanese to accept defeat not alone to bow to those she had once defeated. Under the codes of the samurais, Chinese were (are still) not worthy to receive any apologies (from the Japanese perspective). The occasional apologies or regrets expressed by Japanese officials in the past few decades are just ploys by the politicians to let some of the “steams” off the political arena cooker. Were they genuine? As words must be matched by actions, I think you and I do know the answer here. Bush accepting Abe’s apology is just a typical exemplification of lessening of the impact of Senator Honda’s motion to denounce the Japanese military’s use of comfort women.

    On the other hand, to echo 獨孤兄’s points, Koreans suffered significantly under the Japanese occupation, have tried not to use Japanese products if possible. One would no doubt respect their pride and admire their stubbornness. If there was a choice between China and South Korea, I believe Abe would rather apologize to Koreans as they are worthy of receiving them. For one to apologize to another party, the party must be respectable and worthy enough to receive it. I am not saying 雷婆婆 is not worthy of an apology. Sometimes, it gets too political when the Japanese government has to apologize to the People whose government is political closed and tyrannical.

  16. Cytodex,

    The most delightful thing I had today is to read your message above. It is not because you agree to my viewpoints but because you come back after having kept silence for quite a while. You must have recently been very busy or the topics didn’t interest you. Please spare more time to share with us your outspoken comments as before.

  17. Welcome back!!!! Cytodex兄, where on earth have you been (emphatically waving my hand)!

    Like what 一聽眾女仕 said, we all missed you! This forum should be renamed “Lonely Planet II" without people like you who always give us insightful opinions that are worth saying “Oh", “Ah", “YES!", “Bravo!” and never fail to strike a cord within our hearts!

    Now, let me go out to a pub and celebrate your return…so hang in there, don’t go, I’ll be back tomorrow night to reflect on your and一聽眾女仕’s awesome points…

  18. Sorry, folks. I was busy lately.

    For my “grand" reappearance, I decided to post some provocative remarks here in this thread, definitely something that would upset a lot of my fellow patriots.

    To answer 一聽眾’s question, the topics in the past 2 weeks were extremely interesting and I could have “added fuel to the fire". But, I was just too tired and not well enough to go to the keyboard. However, I was reading your posts from the sidelines. I must admit that the discussions here were intense and well thought out in comparison to other overseas forums where emotions dictate over reasons. So, you all deserve a big round of applause.

    I would like to say that 一聽眾, 獨孤兄, 開玩笑, Ken and a few others whose insights really enlighted me.

    獨孤兄, I may have to keep my sarcasm and cynicism in check, but my DNA tells me not to. So, I am back as a pot stirrer.

    P.S. I am working on my commentary on the dude raising the flag at the North Pole. Stay tunned.
