Cata-al War Memorabilia Museum, Philippines

DSC02546

This past summer, I visited a friend in Dumaguete, Philippines. On the outskirts of the city is Valencia. In Valencia there is a house that has an amazing collection World War II memorabilia. This collection is in what could be called a garage. The owner of the collection found the majority of the collection in the jungles of Mt. Talinis. Felix’s father was a World War II prisoner . Felix explained to my friend and I DSC02544that he started collecting when he was about five years old. However, it was not until 1983, that Felix’s efforts really started. (In 1983, Japan officially ended their efforts to locate missing soldiers). If you are ever on Negros Oriental, this is very worth the visit. The fee is only a donation.
