Description

Bataan-Tarlac, 1942 

After the fall of Bataan, more than 60,000 Filipinos and 10,000 American prisoners were forced to walk more than a hundred kilometers from Mariveles, Bataan to San Fernando, Pampanga. Many died of exhaustion and hunger, and those who stumbled or tried to drink from springs or creeks were beaten or killed. From Pampanga, more would die of suffocation in the cramped trains that transported them to Capas, Tarlac.
