Exhibition: “Children’s Lives in Wartime Japan”
This exhibition provides vivid insights into education and children's lives at the end of World War II in Japan.
Some 50 entries from the picture diaries of Japanese elementary school school at that time are on display. Translations into English and contextual explanations are provided.
The free exhibition, which is subsidised by the Japan Foundation, is organised by Peter Cave and Aaron Moore (University of Manchester). It will be held at Manchester Central Library until 31 March 2017.
