Swiss gov't installs Rizal markers in key cities

GENEVA, Switzerland – The Swiss government will install 2 commemorative markers of Dr. Jose Rizal in 2 of its key cities in celebration of the birth anniversary of the Philippine hero.
This week, the Philippines is celebrating the 149th birth anniversary of Rizal. Not known to many, Rizal toured several cities of Switzerland for almost 3 weeks while on school break in 1887. At that time, Rizal was taking ophthalmology in nearby Germany.
Ambassador Teresa Lazaro accompanied the ABS-CBN Europe News Bureau team to the Rizal marker in downtown Geneva, and Consul Ava Arcilla in the Schaffhausen marker near the train station.
The two markers are near former hotel buildings where Rizal stayed, along with travel companion and revolutionary leader Maximo Viola of Bulacan.
Rizal considered staying in Switzerland because of striking similarities in the culture of both countries.
"I think nung tina-translate niya yung William Tell from German to Tagalog nakita niya yung pareho yung sitwasyon ng mga tao dito at yung ating mga kababayan sa pahanon na yun under Spanish colonial rule. Nakita niya na pareho yung struggles. Siguro he wanted to observe yung parallelism," Lazaro said.
Rizal also compared similar struggles that both countries endured during the early times.
While in Geneva, Rizal was warned by friends to further stay in Europe as his novel, "Noli Me Tangere", was condemned by Spanish religious authorities.
The reproduction and circulation of the book was prohibited then. Nevertheless, Rizal proceeded to go home to Manila on July 3, 1887 from Europe.

Rizal's statue in Jinjiang, Fujian, China is enshrined in a 5-hectare park built and named in his honor. The monument made of the world-famous Jinjiang granite stones, stands 18.61 meters high, taller than the 12-meter high Rizal statue in Luneta
