Taipei, Oct. 22 (CNA) Descendants of a late American physician who helped
save many Chinese civilians during World War II said they were “honored” to visit Taiwan to attend commemorative events marking the 70th anniversary of the end of the war.
Robert O. Wilson’s two daughters Elizabeth Wilson Hissing and Marjorie Wilson Massey Garrett and his son Robert O. Wilson Jr., arrived in Taiwan earlier Thursday on a visit that will last until Oct. 27, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.
“We feel so honored that my father is being commemorated,” said Garrett, 73, during a news conference with the local media in Taipei.
“Because of him, we are sitting here right now,” she said, describing the U.S. physician as “an amazing father.”
