Patients suffering from Hansen's disease (formerly called leprosy) once faced harsh discrimination and forced isolation. Some hundred years ago, Briton Hannah Riddell founded a hospital in Japan for these unfortunates; she was succeeded in her work by her niece. Their stories shed light on the nature of both the disease and Japanese society.
