Korean Peace Memorial
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Memorial Site. Situated at Marpi Point on the north end of Saipan Island, in the Marianas, the monument was built by the Korean Commemoration Council in 1981. It is dedicated to the honor of over a thousand Korean citizens brought to the island as forced laborers by the Japanese government. Many of the women drafted were forced into servitude to the Japanese military and died without any form of compensation during World War II. The Korean Peace Memorial is also the starting point for the Banadero Trail, leading to the top of Suicide Cliff. Memorial plaques along the path pay respects to Japanese, Okinawan and other citizens who lost their lives in the Battle of Saipan June 15 to July 9, 1944. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
