Chapter 11 opens with an account of the women working in the kitchens. Their daily routine consisted of rising extremely early to prepare the meagre food on which the prisoners subsided and the cleanup of the cooking equipment that followed. The author follows this account with one of his own in which he incurred the anger of a Japanese officer, who beat him with a dog whip and attempted to humiliate him on a regular basis. The chapter closes with the separation of the men from the women in the camp and their relocation to a separate facility and the heartbreak the author's mother suffered on account of this.
