In our histoPOD podcast we speak to international experts to learn how the Holocaust is remembered in different countries.
Japan and Germany were Allies in the Second World War. Memory of the Second World War is often influenced by 1945, the last year of the war, and the nuclear bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. How is the Holocaust communicated in Japan, and how does the country deal with its past? The Holocaust Education Resource Center (Kokoro) was founded in Tokyo in 1998. In this episode of the histoPOD we speak to its director, Fumiko Ishioka.
