What people are saying:

When I came here, the weather was a bit gloomy, and the atmosphere was unknowingly, a bit heavy. Right next to the cathedral and across from the tangled tree, the doorway looked gloomy. Inside it was a Japanese prisoner of war camp. During World War II, the Japanese army used captured Americans to build an airport. On the eve of their surrender, 143 prisoners of war were burned to death. Only a few survivors jumped into the sea to escape. Now here is a small garden where the work "Salute to Palawan-70 Years of Freedom History" by the director of the Third World Studies Center of the University of the Philippines is displayed. If you are still interested in history, you will understand that the history of mankind In every war, countless people and things disappear in local battles, and the Pacific battle represented by Palawan is just a drop in the ocean. In the garden, some young students with the appearance of students are holding a pile of test papers to prepare for the exam, or are gathering together to chat about something, and not far from the garden is the sea. If you think back then, it should be a minority of survivors. Way of escape. Sometimes, it is difficult to understand the complex attitudes of many countries towards the United States, respect, fear, and want to stay away, but at least, here, looking at the monument of 143 American soldiers who died in a foreign country, maybe you will Be clearer. Perhaps you should think again about Shen Guangyao in "Wuwen Xidong", think about the U.S. military flight instructor who doesn't even have a name, there is always something outside of dirty politics...
