The marker besides this Memorial Cross in Fort Santiago reads:
In Memory Of The Victims At Fort Santiago
On this site lie the mortal remains of approximately 600 Filipinos. Their bodies were found inside a nearby dungeon where victims of the atrocities perpetrated by the Japanese Imperial Forces were imprisoned during the last days of February 1945.
The memory of all these unknown victims of Japanese atrocities will live forever in the hearts and minds of the Filipino People.
May their souls rest in peace.
