MANILA TRANSITIO 1945 MEMORIAL DAY
Filipinos suffered their greatest loss in the Battle of Manila. The people of
Ermita and Malate were massacred, Intramuros’ seven churches were pummelled to
dust, and Manila as a city took a turn of which it really never recovered. The
beautiful City of Manila was on it’s knees and it’s memory forgotten by it’s
To commemorate the
Battle of Manila, I have been personally mounting a special event since 2009
called Manila Transitio 1945 within
the historical grounds of Fort Santiago inside Intramuros. A combination of history, art, and culture, this event
hopes to become an annual commemoration/memorial where we as Manileños may
reflect upon the passing of this event in our history. A way for us to remind
future generations that there once was a beautiful Manila and there’s a
beautiful Manila that can be redeemed again.
year, our 5th Manila Transitio 1945 will fall on February 21, 2014, Friday in the gardens of Fort Santiago.
