Depicting Memories of War on Postcards - Exhibition of One Thousand Testimonies
As the juncture of seventy years since the end of the Second World War, the Mainichi Newspapers and TBS Television are promoting Sen-no-shogen (“One Thousand Testimonies”) to pass on experiences of war and wartime to future generations. To date, more than one thousand testimonies (on postcards and other media) have been collected, and an exhibition to introduce them will be held at ITOCHU AOYAMA ART SQUARE.
Taken from a time when each individual was forced to confront war, the content of the testimonies vary, but a picture of “what was that war all about” emerges through a superimposition of these differing accounts. The exhibition displays the postcards on which the testimonies are written, along with related articles, photos, footage and records of coverage in various dimensions to tell the story of how people lived in a time of war.
