Castureras, Dr. Flora

Unit: Philipine Civilian

Dr. Castureras was born in 1931 in Luzon Philippines.  He was only 10 when the Japanese invaded the Philippine Islands. He cleaned the Japanese Officers quarters then took any information back to the Philippine guerrillas. At about 13 he was forced to watch a beheading that he has never gotten over.  He still has such strong feelings about the Japanese that he broke into tears in 2008 when I interviewed him.
