Description This nameplate came from the home of Toshiko Yasui's younger brother Seiichi Maegawara. His house was crushed by the blast and burned. Seiichi, his mother, his wife, and their children were all killed. On about August 20, Toshiko went looking for their remains, but they had been cremated immediately with many other corpses. She was never able to identify the remains of her family. This nameplate was found in the burned ruins of their home. She took it with her and treasured it in his memory.
