To me, unknown U.S. WWII military history. Sad occurrence on Palawan when the Japanese Army purposely burned to death over 100 U.S. POWs. Totally disgusting and another example of how much hatred there is for Japanese people by Americans. And people want to know why an atomic bomb was dropped on them.

Used to be an old fort used by both Americans and Japanese forces during the last world war. American POWs were held there. Towards the end of the war, when American forces were about to take Puerto Princes, the Japanese massacred about 150 POWs - all American - by pouring gasoline in the trench where they were kept and set...

A few steps from Immaculate Conception Church is Plaza Cuartel which is a historic landmark in Palawan. Pictures are mounted for the visitors to appreciate, which tells the historical significance of the place.
