Hiroshima: Peace Memorial Museum, Memory -- A student's shoe

Abstract

Kazuhiko Sasaki, 12-years old, was a first year student at First Hiroshima Prefectural Junior High School and was exposed to the atomic blast at his school, 1200 meters from the hypocenter, at Zakoba-cho (now Kokutaiji-machi). After the explosion, his mother walked the city searching for him. On the morning of August 8, she found his body near the school pool and cremated him there. The family later found this shoe, which had belonged to him, in rubble near the school and treasured it as a keepsake. (Donated by Ayako Sasaki.)
