Overview
More
This museum was established by the former Governor of Okinawa Prefecture, Masahide Ota. Yearning for peace without war, Mr. Ota and the institution offer you the permanent exhibition of the Battle of Okinawa and the Holocaust. We would like for you to see pictures that he collected after the Battle of Okinawa and truly understand how horrible war is. Mr. Ota conscripted by the Japanese Imperial Army and dragged into the battle of Okinawa when he was a student. He managed to survive in the bloodiest last stand of the southern Okinawa. His war experience caused him to find out why people of Okinawa suffered the battle. Battle of Okinawa/Holocaust Exhibition placed in the first floor and first to third landings of Okinawa International Research Institute has three themes: ①the battle of Okinawa (over 1,000 photos collected by Mr. Ota after the war while he was a professor) , ②Atomic bombings of cities in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Holocaust, genocides of Sino-Japanese war and Korean war (about 50 photos), and ③postwar reconstruction of Okinawa (about 900 photos). There are many problems in the world. But, war is not the answer to the problems. We hope to consider with you what is the battle of Okinawa and the wars going on somewhere in the world. We are looking forward to your visits.
