展示説明文(英語) Akatsuki Corps seal
Etsuro Hirama's father, Kanjiro, was vice commander of the Army Marine Headquarters Akatsuki Corps. He was exposed in front of the gate on the way to the Hijiyama Army Marine Artillery Corps Command. He received treatment at a temporary army hospital on the outskirts of Hiroshima. Bandages were wrapped around his arms and face, revealing only his eyes and mouth. After he was released, he worked at the Demobilization Bureau of the Ministry of Health and Welfare in Ujina. In August 1953, he died of leukemia in Osaka, where he had moved. When Kanjiro was hospitalized, one of his subordinates delivered the Akatsuki Corps seal, which was needed for approving decisions. Because the war ended soon thereafter, the seal remained in the household's possession.

(from the donor's accounts and comments)
My mother hated to talk about the situation after the bombing, calling it "hell on earth". When she died 12 years ago, I was the only one left who knew about the Hiroshima catastrophe, the soldiers, and the seal belonging to the corps.I see that my father's life began and ended with war. I give thanks for the peace of today.
