World War II Virtual Reality Experience

To preserve the stories of World War II in Guam, Pacific Historic Parks produced an immersive hands-on interactive learning experience called the Guam World War II Virtual Reality.  Utilizing oral histories, students can hear survivor stories firsthand and gain an understanding of pivotal points in our island’s history.  


Getting Started

For those that are unable to watch the virtual reality experience, students can use the multimedia files in the following chapters, which depict a glimpse of the experience of the CHamoru people during WWII, based on the oral histories of war survivors who courageously shared their personal accounts.

Listen to the stories of those who witnessed the invasion of Guam by Japanese Imperial Forces in December 1941 in the Plaza de España; the Ge’us Valley in Malesso’ depicting the occupation’s forced labor in rice fields; and the events at Atåte – the site of the CHamoru resistance at Inalåhan before the end of the war.
