NH 73515 Philippine Invasion, 1941-1942.

Philippine Invasion, 1941-1942.
Title: Philippine Invasion, 1941-1942.
Caption: Scene at the enemy alien internment camp at Santo Tomas University, Manila, in 1942. Copied from the Japanese book: "Philippine Expeditionary Force," published in 1943. Original Japanese caption: "Enemy alien internment camp, Santo Tomas University, Manila City. Portrayed here are people representing the haughty enemy countries that hold contempt toward us. Until yesterday these same people walked through the streets of Manila with their shoulders squared and uplifted noses. They must have been oblivious to the fact that Orientals possessed both talent and power. Now that history is being made we must become aware of the true characteristics of the enemy."
