The Chapel at Bilibid

The Chapel at Bilibid
The men in Bilibid Prison build a crude chapel against one of the fortress walls for church services. All denominations worship here. By this time prisoners have taken the sleeves and legs off their clothing to patch what is left. They wear the same uniforms for two and a half years. They make "clackers" by nailing what remains of their shoes, the boot tops, to pieces of boards.
