Story of a True Hero
Jose C. Soriano
During World War II, a plane piloted by Americans crashed in the Philippines near the village where author Jose C. Soriano’s grandparents lived. Despite the hostile Japanese presence in the area and the danger to themselves, Aguida Lolarga Castro and Emeterio Castro found the wounded Americans and helped them escape the area safely. But this wasn’t easy.
A Story of a True Hero shares the horrible conditions the Castros and other Filipinos had to live in under the Japanese invaders, including kidnap, torture, and sexual slavery. Readers may find this story of how two people helped save others and their nation truly inspiring.
