Photo taken in 1935. Original belongs to Kazuhide Aruga

Photo taken in 1935 in Palikir, Pohnpei by the family of 
Kazuhide Aruga.

Kazuhide Aruga Birth: 11. 14. 1936 in Palikir, Pohnpei
His younger sister: Natsue

Mr. Aruga's elder brother and younger sister are buried in this graveyard. His elder brother does not have his name (since he passed away in about two weeks). His younger sister's name is Natsue. Although the location of the grave was not clear, he seemed to remember the general area as indeed being the location of the original cemetery. Kazuhide Aruga left for Japan after the end of the war.

The cemetery is located on the South side of the College of Micronesia-FSM Sports Center.
