3 sisters to recount WWII island journey in POW uncle's footsteps

Three Bronx-born sisters are returning to the borough to discuss their journey to a remote South Pacific island where their uncle was imprisoned by the Japanese and killed at the end of World War II.

Andrea Talbutt of Rockland County, Susan Nishihira of Seattle and Marcy Hanigan of Los Angeles will be speaking Wednesday night at the Huntington Free Library about last year's trip to the island where their uncle spent the last months of his life as a POW.

Marine fighter pilot Moszek "Mike" Zanger of the Bronx bailed out of his damaged plane in December 1944, was taken prisoner and killed by his captors in 1945. The sisters visited the jungle crash site and identified wreckage with the help of Justin Taylan of Hyde Park, founder of the Pacific Wrecks website.
