Vietnamese Bride Still Loves Her Japanese Husband – 60 Years After He Left


An interesting story by War History Online. It looks at the story of Nguyen Thi Xuan who is still in love with her Japanese husband, Shimizu, after he left Vietnam 60 years ago.  Xuan had met Shimizu, a soldier in the Imperial Japanese Army in 1943, married and had children.  When Japan lost the war, Shimizu returned back to Japan leaving behind half-Japanese/half-Vietnamese offsprings.

Xuan got back into touch with Shimizu in 2006 but he had already remarried.
