About Manuel L. Quezon

Manuel Luis Quezon y Molina was President of the Philippines from 1935-1944. More here:

He was made a Mason on March 17, 1908 in Sinukuan Lodge No. 272, now Sinukuan Lodge No. 16. More here: In 1933, he left Masonry.

He was originally buried at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia, United States. His body was later reinterred in the North Cemetery in Manila and finally transferred to Quezon City.

“Quezon's Game”, the film centers around Philippine President Manuel L. Quezon and his plan to shelter Jews in the Philippines who were fleeing from Nazi Germany during the World War II era.

In 1938, Philippine President Manuel Quezon, future U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower, and several other notable figures set out to rescue Jewish refugees from the ghettos of Germany and Austria. What seems within their power at first, turns out to be fraught with astronomical obstacles. On top of this, Quezon must battle a relapse of tuberculosis. In his final days, Quezon asks the question "Could I have done more?" before recollecting one of the least known, but most uplifting stories in Philippine history.
