About 600 Dead Unnamed Filipinos

This is one of the supposed reminders we ought to know but is not always highlighted when anyone talks about Fort Santiago. All we remember, or we are asked to remember is that this place was where Rizal was imprisoned prior to his death by firing squad – thus, we all know that. But recent history, as told by this marker tells us too that there were many people who perished inside these walls because of World War II.

Whoever they were, Rizal must have received them in heaven with a hand salute!
