Memoirs of a Communist
In Memoirs of a Communist, Dr. Jesus B. Lava recounts his years as one of the leaders of the Communist movement in the Philippines. Lava (1914-2003) was the youngest of five brothers, who all figured prominently in the Philippine Left. Described as the least likely to become a Communist, he was a medical doctor when WWII began in the Philippines and was imprisoned by the Japanese for tending to guerillas and American soldiers, an experience, that "strengthened his conviction to join the party and devote the rest of his life to it."
