A must see movie
13 December 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Inspired by real events and based on Rod Miller's manuscript The Lost Women of Rabaul Sisters of War is a telemovie based on the true story of two Australian women, Lorna Whyte, an army nurse and Sister Berenice Twohill, a Catholic nun from New South Wales who survived as prisoners of war in Papua New Guinea during World War II. The two women remained friends for the remainder of their lives. Beautifully filmed with a feel of authenticity. The story of the Rabaul nurses would never have been told if it wasn't for an auctioneer who discovered a diary written by Grace Kruger, one of four civilian nurses captured by the Japanese in Rabaul in 1942. Apparently the diary was written cryptically as to confuse the Japanese soldiers and any casual reader and as a consequence went unnoticed for decades.
