Nuchi du Takara: Lessons from the Battle of Okinawa.
Exhibition on view January 15 through August 14, 2011
Location: NJAHS' Peace Gallery 1684 Post St., San Francisco Japantown
Nuchi du Takara (translation: Life Itself is Our Treasure) will share the story of the Battle of Okinawa from an Okinawan point of view and honor the resilient spirit of the survivors who went on to rebuild their lives and create a legacy of peace. The centerpiece of the exhibition will be a re-creation of a cave similar to the ones that Okinawan civilians sought refuge from the fierce fighting known as the "Typhoon of Steel."
