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

Soldiers

They left their families and went to fight for their country, risking their lives to fulfill their duties and enduring great hardship.

Soldiers

Detainees in Siberia

They endured brutal forced labor, inadequate food rations, and 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

They had been living overseas and were dispossessed after Japan's defeat in World WarⅡ. They endured terrible conditions and physical danger as they made 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.
