This year marks the 75th anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. We released a message video on Hiroshima memorial (August 6th) and the Nagasaki memorial (August 9th). 

The videos were filmed by Takashi Arai, the director of our first virtual tour video. (Click here for more information on this project.)

English subtitles are now available! You can simply turn on CC (closed caption/subtitles) and choose English. Click here for more information on turning on/off the CC.

Message on the Hiroshimai Memorial [August 6th] - 3m23s

Hisako Maruki, a niece of Toshi Maruki and a picture book author, shares her memories with the Marukis in this video.

Message on the Nagasaki Memorial [August 9th] - 5m43s

An interview with the curater, Yukinori Okamura. While the Marukis did not experience the atomic bombing of Nagasaki first hand, they were well aware that passing on memories of Nagasaki is equally important. The last painting of the Hiroshima Panels (XV) is “Nagasaki” — which is on display at the Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum.

Finally, we would like to thank you once again for your contribution to global preservation fund for the Hiroshima Panels. This will be an ongoing project, and we launched it just in time for these important days! Since August is a very busy month for us, we have not been able to publicize this campaign (you are one of the first donors!). We would be so grateful if you could tell your friends and family about this new campaign! 

We hope you enjoy watching the videos! Thank you very much for your support! Please stay safe and in good health!

Best wishes from the Maruki Gallery for the Hiroshima Panels
