Description Chest of drawers
Kikue Suenaga's mother-in-law Misao, was exposed while demolishing buildings near Koami-cho as a member of the Volunteer Citizen Corps. Her remains were never found.
After the war, Kikue's husband Masaki treasured this chest, burned on a drawer, as a remembrance of her.

(from the donor’s comments)
My husband treasured this chest and brought it along every time we moved.
He died in May 2005. I am getting older myself and decided to donate it because it will be difficult for me to store it.
