The account of Sor Consuelo S., D.C. provides a unique and first hand description of the events in Intramuros during the Battle of Manila in the period of February 3–26, 1945. Harrowing in its details, the account testifies to the courage and faith of the DC Sisters and the people who were with them during the ordeal.
