Servant or Slave
Stolen from their families and forced into slave labour, five women draw on courage, strength and fortitude to pursue justice.
Servant or Slave is a true story about the heartbreaking experiences of Rita Wright, Rita Wenberg, Violet West, Adelaide Wenberg and Valerie Linow.
Theirs was a hard fight for personal retribution, and a pivotal one for the next generation.
