The public comment period is now open for the Manenggon Concentration Camp's nomination for National Historic Landmark.

Thousands of CHamorus were held at Manenggon during the end of the Japanese occupation of Guam. Guam Preservation Trust head Joe Quinata says the landmark status will be reviewed and voted on at the federal level.

National Historic Landmarks are "significant historic places that possess exceptional value in illustrating the heritage of the united states," according to the park service. The Manenggon concentration camp was listed on the national register of historic places in June of 2016.
