Description

Personal account by an American Protestant missionary and her family during the war in the Philippines.

Hazel’s husband, Lyle, was the president of the Adventist mission in the Philippines before the war and was busy tending to the missionaries who escaped from China during the Japanese attack there. When the war broke out in the Philippines, the Wilcoxes moved to Baguio, which they thought was safer than Manila, only to encounter Japanese attacks there. When the Japanese occupied Baguio, the Wilcoxes, being missionaries, were allowed to stay outside internment camp, and eventually moved to Manila. Their house was seized by the Japanese, husband and son were interned, but Mrs. Wilcox remained outside since she had to care for her aged mother.

She writes of their life under the Japanese, the difficulties and anxieties they faced, and the excitement of seeing the Americans return. The family was reunited after the war and was repatriated to the US.
