Memories of Hiroshima tells the story of Australian soldiers and Japanese residents of Hiroshima after World War II. It includes the first-hand accounts of Dan Crane, a Australian soldier serving in the British Commonwealth Occupational Force (BCOF) and Keijiro Matsushima, a Hiroshima resident who was a child when the atom bomb was dropped, ending World War II. The intimate exhibition showcases many photos and special-issue military currencies collected by Dan Crane during his service with the BCOF.
ToadShow worked on the research, design, print and installation of the Memories of Hiroshima exhibition at the Brisbane Square Library, George Street. The Hiroshima Peace Culture Foundation with the InterCultural Consulting Group brought the Hiroshima-Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Exhibition, which forms a large part of Memories of Hiroshima, over from Japan. It includes artefacts from when the atomic bomb was dropped.
Memories of Hiroshima is open at the Brisbane Square Library, George Street until 30 April.
