Message on the Hiroshima Memorial [August 6th]
Hisako Maruki, a niece of Toshi Maruki and a picture book author, shares her memories with the Marukis in this video. [3m23s]
Message on the Nagasaki Memorial [August 9th]
An interview with the curater, Yukinori Okamura. While the Marukis did not experience the atomic bombing of Nagasaki first hand, they were well aware that passing on memories of Nagasaki is equally important. The last painting of the Hiroshima Panels (XV) is “Nagasaki” — which is on display at the Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum. [5m43s]
We hope you enjoy the videos!
