My cousins and Uncle were held captive there for three years I was wondering if you had any info there names are John Canson, Pat Chickese and Michael Chickese. My cousin Mike may have spelled his name as, "Cicchese" (died about 1959 in Reno, Nevada).
My Uncle John Canson owned the Santa Ana Cabaret and was good friends with General MacArthur. When the war was over he let the red cross use the Cabaret for all the prisoners.
