Description When Hidesaburo Iwase went missing after the atomic bombing, his nephew's wife Setsuko came to Hiroshima and searched for him. Unable to find a trace of Hidesaburo either at his workplace or home, both reduced to ashes, Setsuko retrieved this inkstone from his home. In 1994, the family was informed that Hidesaburo's ashes had been stored in the Atomic Bomb Memorial Mound in Peace Memorial Park. Fifty years after the atomic bombing, Hidesaburo's ashes were returned to his family.
