Japanese and War
September 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 24, 25

–There was a war in my country 60 years ago. (…so I hear)

60 years after the end of World War II, Japan’s memory of war is getting faint, yet the shadow of it is still here. So is the same unfounded fear against races. This staged reading series is not for raising voice against this, but for giving us all a chance to revisit the piece of sad history that should not be repeated.
