During WW II, the Japanese converted the campus into a concentration camp for civilians, foreigners and POW's. Some 4,255 Allied civilians were housed there, until 1945 when the Americans liberated Santo Tomas. Some of the most brutal war crimes against Americans and Filipino soldiers and civilians living abroad occurred there with some 466 deaths including five women who were taken away and executed. Others who tried to escape by going over the wall were re-captured and executed by the Japanese.
