Our Exhibit is at SM Mall of Asia!

Filipinos young & old are in for a treat at the World War II exhibit dubbed as “The War Of Our Fathers…A Tribute to the Filipino Freedom Fighter” at the SM Mall of Asia 2F Entertainment Mall. The exhibit is free and open to the public, and will run until April 14, 2007.

The educational exhibit has vintage photographs, artifacts and memorabilia on display from World War II. Philippine Veterans Bank (PVB) and the Veterans Federation of the Philippines (VFP), in partnership with National Historical Institute, are sponsoring the world-class exhibit.

Secretary Hermogenes E. Ebdane Jr. of the Department of National Defense, Monetary Board Member Vicente Valdepenas, PVB Directors Antonio Balgos & Percianita Racho & PVB President & CEO Ricardo Balbido Jr., and other top officials formally opened the Exhibit last April 2, 2007.

The traveling exhibit has been to nine sites all over the country in 2006 in malls, museums and schools. This 2007, it started its its tour in SM Dasmarinas, Cavite in time for the 62nd year anniversary of the Liberation of Tagaytay, then to the Far Eastern University in Sampaloc, Manila. FEU was the site of a Japanese concentration camp in the last world war. We then brought it to San Fernando, La Union in time for the commemoration of the Battle for Bacsil Ridge.
