Captain Herman C. Kluge
Apr 29th, 2018, 4:21pm
I am trying to find information on my grandfather, Herman C. Kluge. He was the superintendent of a sawmill until the Japanese invasion of the Philippines. He then became Captain of the 121st Infantry Regiment in the American-Filipino Army. He and my grandmother, Anna Dettbarn Kluge, live with the guerillas in the mountains of North Luzon. My grandfather led the group tormenting the Japanese troops, which finally led to a price of 5,000 pesos for his capture. He surrendered July 4th, 1943 in order to save a village from mass execution. He was taken to a prison camp and later an underground dungeon, referred to as "The Icebox". After months of torture, he was executed November 1, 1943 near Manila. His remains have never been recovered.

Any information about him is appreciated. My grandmother escaped from the Philippines and was never able find word regarding his remains, either.
