Sometimes you don't need to go to recall the atrocities that occurred in the Philippines during the Japanese occupation when you are travelling, but sometimes it is still good to visit.

So glad we went and looked at this. There was some wonderful information about the things that went on here. Beautifully presented memorial to the men that lost their lives. It is quite shocking to learn about what happened to the men and the reasons for it.

Small, quiet place, where are only few information about WWII history. I like this place, as history is my hobby, but can imagine, that many people will disappointed as there is almost nothing to see.

Its a war memorial with little to offer except horror stories of Japanese treatment of prisoners. They burned 150 USA prisoners alive, horrible but sobering for modern society.
