Refuge for a Purple Heart

Available in Library

During WWII, over a thousand Jewish European refugees migrated to the Philippines to escape Hitler’s persecution, only to find themselves enduring Japanese occupation. At the center of Refuge for a Purple Heart is a love story between Austrian refugee Stefan and native Ambrosio. Can such a queer pairing survive the brutalities of war?
