#histoVOICES: Misato from Japan

Misato aus Japan

von: Pavel Franzusov

Misato is from a Buddhist family. In this edition of histoVOICES she explains why there is no longer a bell in her temple's bell tower and why she worries that Japan might change its constitution, 75 years after the end of the Second World War.

Inhalt

First-hand memories of the Second World War are fading, as only a handful of contemporary witnesses remain to talk about their experiences. What remains of this memory? What does the end of the Second World War mean to young people today? What are the perspectives of different countries and regions?

Film maker Pavel Franzusov asked young people from all over their world about their relationship with the Second World War. He artistically translated their stories into short films. Here you can learn about Misato’s perspective from Japan.

Die Erinnerungen an den Zweiten Weltkrieg aus erster Hand verblassen. Nur noch wenige Zeitzeuginnen und Zeitzeugen können von ihren Erlebnissen und Erfahrungen berichten. Was bleibt von der Erinnerung? Was bedeutet für junge Menschen heute auf das Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs? Wie unterscheiden sich Perspektiven aus verschiedenen Ländern und Regionen?

Misato kommt aus einer buddhistischen Familie und erzählt in dieser Folge von histoVOICES, warum in dem Glockenturm ihres Tempels heute keine Glocke mehr hängt und weshalb sie sich davor sorgt, dass Japan 75 Jahre nach dem Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs die Verfassung ändern könnte.
