Joseph Song, as a young man, along with his mother, escaped from Pyongyang, North Korea, during the Soviet occupation following World War II. His mother, W.S. Koh, a courageous and determined woman, risked her life six times, crossing the 38th Parallel which was guarded by Soviet soldiers and returning to Pyongyang to scrape together money for Joseph's medical education at Seoul National University.
This is Joseph's story about his mother who was so determined and very brave. She was an extremely intelligent, yet gracious lady, who was filled with unlimited mother's love. Joseph is eternally grateful for her acts of courage.
