JAPAN IN RUINS

When peace was signed on September 2, 1945, the country was in near chaos. Japanese society had been crushed and bled dry. 9 million Japanese were homeless, the nation was starving.
The return of those millions of men and women who were out of the country would take place over a period of 10 years.
We met seven of them who returned in the 1940’s and ‘50’s. Their personal memories are a moving and powerful testimony to history.
