A brief program of remembrance will hold on Feb. 16 at this memorial by sculptor Peter de Guzman at the Plazuela de Santa Isabel in Intramuros. It will be attended by families of those who died in Manila during the battle for its liberation from Feb. 3 to March 3 in 1945. James Scott, author of Rampage: MacArthur, Yamashita, and the Battle of Manila, will be the guest speaker at the gathering. The epitaph on the memorial, written by National Artist for Literature Nick Joaquin, begins with, “This memorial is dedicated to all those innocent victims of war.”
