"WWII… freed survivors of Intramuros, Manila, Philippines, February 23, 1945." . The Japanese refused to retreat beyond the civilian areas of Manila as the American and Filipino forces moved in on the old city. Instead the Japanese embarked on a savage quest to rid Manila of Filipinos and collectively punish the civilians for Japan's barbaric occupation having failed. While the Japanese did not view Filipinos as human, the American military made it painfully clear that it would not risk US lives to spare the trapped civilians. The bombardments were thorough and deadly. Filipinos who had endured the Japanese hedonism were subjected to the might of the American armed forces. Freedom never comes to these islands easily. It has been restored through the blood of common Filipinos who refused to go to their graves without a fight. It came through hundreds of years of perseverance and countless generations refusing to give in. If there is anything that best defines the spirit of the Pinoy people it is that of their resilience and courage in the face of death itself. . . . . . . . . . #Philippines #Pilipinas #Pinas #Pilipino #Filipino #Pinoy #Pinay #Filipinas #PhilippinesHistory #FilipinoHistory #PinoyHistory #History #War #WorldWarTwo #WorldWar2 #WW2 #America #USA #US #Japan #Manila #Intramuros #PinoyPride #FilipinoPride
