Camp Profiles


There were three internment camps on Luzon where most of the civilian prisoners captured in the Philippines were concentrated, many being brought from other islands.  The largest camp was Santo Tomas Internment Camp in Manila, called Camp 1 by the Japanese, which at times had more than 4,000 prisoners.  To relieve the overcrowding, the Japanese created a new camp about 40 miles south of Manila at Los Baņos, called Camp 2, which eventually held about 2,200 prisoners.  Camp 3 was located in Baguio with about 500 prisoners who were brought into Manila in late 1944 and held in the Bilibid prison.  Profiles of these camps can be found on the following pages.
