Liberation: War and Hope is an exhibit by the Filipinas Heritage Library, which delves into the everyday life of Filipinos before, during, and after World War II.

Apart from the gallery, Filipino Heritage Library's program comes with webinars discussing the "rebirth of the Philippine nation" after the war. You can find the schedule on its Facebook account here.
