"Hiroshima and Nagasaki Censored" by Kiyoko Horiba

Hiroshima and Nagasaki Censored by Kiyoko Horiba

In Japan the miseries of war, the air raids, and the atomic bombs are often told, while other aspects, particularly the memory of war crimes, has been far less discussed.

Many Japanese people may know about the daihonéi happyou or force-feeding military propaganda. But, what little known is about the censorship system by the occupation forces after the war or even the fact that Japan ranked 67 out of 180 in the 2018 World Press Freedom Index (72nd last year).

That’s why I would like to draw people’s attention to our history. Here is Hiroshima and Nagasaki Censored, wonderful work by Kiyoko Horiba, poet, which was published by Meiji Gakuin University (International Peace Research Institute) this year. Please share this work with as many people as possible.
