Exemplifying the official myopia of the Marcos years, crony developers moved in and built a casino-resort complex on the heights above the former 92nd Garage area, deliberately obliterating all heritage cues to the memory of more than eleven thousand men confined in the area for two weeks in May 1942.
" If one can imagine, one small source of water for twelve to fourteen thousand men crammed into this incredibly small area! The line for water continued around the clock! Anytime during the day or night, you could walk out of your lean-to and see the endless line, waiting, seldom moving, just waiting. The clank of the aluminum canteens was always audible. Looking back, I almost cannot believe that we survived this period of time at 92nd Garage! "
