Translation into Filipino of "Breaking the Silence" by Lourdes R. Montinola published in 1996 by the University of the Philippines Press and the Creative Writing CenterLanguage/Translation Info: TagalogSummary: A personal account of events long suppressed about Japanese atrocities in the Battle of Manila in 1945. The author’s father was Dr. Nicanor Reyes, founder and first president of the Far Eastern University. She writes about her father, her mother, her pre-war life and the life under the Japanese. Her father was brutally killed, her mother bayoneted, as she was hiding; it took fifty years for her to come to terms with that tragedy and put it in writing. The book also contains her journal entries as she struggled to remember what she had tried so hard to forget; she was encouraged to write her memories and reactions by both National Artist Nick Joaquin, who was writing a biography of her father, and Prof. Cristina Pantoja Hidalgo, head of the University of the Philippines’ Creative Writing Center. - Prof. Ricardo T. Jose
