‘Yamashita surrender must be remembered in schools’
by Georaloy I. Palao-ay

As a way of raising the youth’s historical and cultural consciousness, the Department of Education-Cordillera directed its schools and offices to commemorate on Sept. 3 of every year the surrender of the Japanese military forces during World War II.

In a regional memorandum issued recently, DepEd-Cordillera cited Republic Act 11216 or an Act Declaring Sept. 3 of every year a special working public holiday throughout the country, in commemoration of the surrender of the japanese military forces led by General Tomoyuki Yamashita in Baguio City.

“This is a significant event in world history that happened in our region; it is but right to impart this including the contributions of our World War II veterans and local heroes to our Cordilleran learners,” said regional director May B. Eclar.

Schools and offices are encouraged to carry out meaningful activities integrated in their school programs or events, as well as in classroom discussions.

The memorandum stated that such commemorations and observances not only instill in the minds of learners the greatness of the Filipino race, the legacy of their heroes, and the ideals of nationhood but also reawaken their sense of patriotism and nationalism.

Also known as “The Tiger of Malaya,” Yamashita formally signed on Sept. 3, 1945 surrender documents before American forces at the American High Commissioner’s Residence in Camp John Hay, Baguio City where he was brought by helicopter from the town of Kiangan, Ifugao where he and his troops surrendered on Sept. 2 of that year. His surrender led to the end of the Second World War.
