Memorial Museum for Soldiers, Detainees in Siberia, and Postwar Repatriates

Soldiers

Those who left their families and went to fight for their country, risking their lives to fulfil their duties and enduring great hardship.

Soldiers

Detainees in Siberia

People who endured brutal forced labor on inadequate food rations and under appalling living conditions in Siberia and other arctic areas of the former Soviet Union and Mongolia, even after the war.

Detainees in Siberia

Postwar repatriates

Those who had been living in overseas were dispossessed after Japan's defeat in World WarⅡ. They endured terrible condition and physical danger in making their way back to their homeland.

Postwar repatriates

These displays are designed to help ensure that the memory of the suffering of Japan's World WarII soldiers, detainees in Siberia, and postwar repatriates is passed down to future generations who have never experienced war. They include historical materials, graphics, videos, and dioramas.
