Radio Interviews About WWII

Monday, August 15, 2005 Posted: 12:21 AM JST

On August 8, Dutch public broadcaster De Evangelische Omroep (EO) aired a radio documentary about Japan sixty years after the end of WWII. I created this program together with Dutch reporter Matthea Vrij. We interviewed a former kamikaze pilot, a former soldier who had killed a Chinese POW, a survivor of the US firebombing attacks on Japan, several journalists, the director of Osaka Peace Center and visited Osaka Central Library where we saw many thousands of books about WWII, including reports about Japanese atrocities.

The recordings of these WWII interviews are now online. Click on the links in the right column. The one on top is in Dutch, the others are the original Japanese interviews.

The now legendary Sir Ernest Mason Satow (1843-1929) was a member of the British legation in Tokyo for twenty-one years. This classic book is based on the author's detailed diary, personal encounters, and keen memory. In it, Satow records the history of the critical years of social and political upheaval that accompanied Japan's first encounters with the West around the time of the Meiji Restoration. Fascinating.
