Coming soon? Joy Belmonte talks to Israeli ambassador for Jewish monument in QC

It will stand to honor the kindness of former President Manuel Quezon.

Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte recently sat down with Israel Ambassador Effie Ben Matityau for the possibility of erecting a historical marker in Quezon City.

The planned monument will commemorate the long-standing friendship between Israel and Philippines, which dates back to the World War II when Quezon extended help to Jewish foreigners just to escape the Holocaust, or the mass killing of believers under Nazi Germany.

It looks like a proud moment for the city named after the kind president.
