Description Kazuo Nakahara (then, 50), father of the donor, disappeared. No one even knew where he was when the bomb exploded. Tsukasa's mother Natsue (then, 38) searched steadfastly throughout the city for her husband, but never found a clue. This flower vase was dug from the ruins of the house several days after the bombing. Until her death, Natsue treasured it as a keepsake of Kazuo.
