Paul Maruyama Publishes ‘Escape From Manchuria’

Escape from ManchuriaPaul Maruyama, a Colorado College lecturer in Japanese in the German, Russian and East Asian languages department, has published a book titled “Escape from Manchuria.”
The book details the story of Maruyama’s father, Kunio Maruyama, then a 37-year-old Japanese citizen, and his two friends who, together in 1946, devised a plan to escape to Japan from Soviet-occupied Manchuria. The three men personally appealed to General Douglas MacArthur, who was then the Supreme Commander for Allied Power occupying the defeated nation of Japan. The book tells of the courage and perseverance of the three men who eventually brought about the repatriation of 1.7 million Japanese held captive under Soviet occupation in Manchuria.
