I was walking around Malat and found this monument on the street corner. It commemorates those who died in the war to liberate Manila during World War II. The monument may be a relatively new structure. This is because the surrounding area is well protected. I found the words on the statue of the Virgin Mary very moving. The Manila Liberation Monument is located in the Royal City of Manila, just inside the Santa Isabela Park, a small monument. It was just a walk from Manila Cathedral to St Augustine's.
The Manila Liberation Monument is a monument dedicated to the victims of the Manila war.
Just on the way to St Augustinde, Manila Cathedral is like a small garden, missed by mistake. It is actually called the Manila Memorial to the Victims. It is built to commemorate the dead civilians of the Manila Battle at the end of World War II. It is in a flower bush.
The Manila Liberation Monument is located near the city center, very close to the Manila Cathedral. Like a small garden, the middle is a statue. There are carriages around, you can take a carriage to slowly appreciate the surrounding historic buildings.
The sign tells what it represents, the destruction of Manila in WW2. A sobering reminder of cruelty, but a kind reminder of hope for the future.
