Presentation
“Escape from Manchuria”
Presented by the Author, Paul K. Maruyama


In the closing days of WWII, the Soviet Union attacked and occupied Japanese-controlled northern China, then called Manchuria. Immediately, misery and death from cold, hunger, disease, and brutality descended upon the trapped Japanese civilians at the hands of the Soviet Army and revenge seeking mobs and bandits. Nearly 2,500 Japanese, mostly the elderly and children, died daily.
Three courageous Japanese men embarked on a secret mission and escaped to Japan to eventually bring an end to the Manchurian nightmare. Paul K. Maruyama, the son of one of the three courageous men, recently wrote and published Escape from Manchuria which narrates the compelling tale of the rescue and repatriation of nearly 1.7 million Japanese that began almost a year after the surrender of Japan. For the first time, the crucial and benevolent roles played in that rescue by General Douglas MacArthur who commanded the Allied Forces that occupied post-War Japan, by Chiang Kaishek and his Nationalist army who were then engaged in a civil war against Mao Zedong’s communist forces, and by the Catholic Church in both Manchuria and Japan, are brought to light.
Paul Maruyama, who was five years old living in Manchuria with his mother and three bothers at the time of his father’s dramatic escape, will discuss his book and his six-year adventure while engaged in writing the book. Maruyama, a retired USAF officer who taught at the USAF Academy for over ten years, presently teaches Japanese at Colorado College and is the President of the Japan America Society of Southern Colorado.
