Exhibit content
The atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima deprived many children of their precious lives.
In the streets of Hiroshima early in the morning of August 6, 1945, there were children engaged in labor service under a blazing sky.
They were first-year students who had just entered Hiroshima Prefectural Hiroshima Daiichi Junior High School. They were engaged in creating a firebreak to prevent the spread of fire caused by possible air raids. This activity resulted in claiming the lives of so many children.
The Twinkling Stars Know Everything is a collection of sentimental memoirs written by the bereaved families of the students of Hiroshima Prefectural Hiroshima Daiichi Junior High School; they lost their beloved sons, many of whom were engaged in this labor service at the time of the atomic bombing.
How had the families lived their lives before the atomic bomb was dropped?
What did the atomic bombing bring to the families?
How did the students pass away, and what did they call for in their final moments?
What did their families do at that time?
Based on this collection of memoirs, the exhibition will help you experience the parents’ feelings toward their sons, who suddenly vanished from this earth.
