Suicide Cliff

Suicide Cliff is a cliff above Marpi Point Field near the northern tip of Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands. It is a location where thousands of Japanese civilians and soldiers committed suicide by jumping to their deaths in 1944 in order to avoid capture by the United States.

By 1976, Suicide Cliff became a park and peace memorial. Nine acres (3.6 ha) of the location is listed on the US National Register of Historic Places.
