On September 15th , 1944, the Allied Forces led by General Douglas MacArthur arrived in Morotai Island, North Maluku. The Morotai Island was in the hands of the Japanese troops, but that didn’t stop MacArthur from taking the land and winning the Allied Forces’ strategic position in Southeast Asia. This historical invasion still left its mark on Morotai Island; Morotai Traces of World War II Festival is initiated to honor this remembrance.
Gaze upon the very evidence of the war right before your eyes in the 1,800-kilometer wide island: bullets, bottles, to tanks, planes, cannons, mortars, and sunken ships. Morotai Traces of World War II Festival will give you a memorable experience, as you reflect deep into the history of World War II.
