Three POWs are beaten at Cabanatuan POW Camp in the Philippine Islands after trying to escape. This torture was known as "crucifixion." The other POWs were expected to defecate on the men or they too would be beaten. Those subjected to this torture usually died in three days.

This famous picture from the National Archives, shows how poorly the Japanese fed these two former POWs and the other POWs. Both men were liberated by American Rangers from Cabanatuan POW Camp in the Philippine Islands in January, 1945.
