These photos show the recent photo exhibit at KitaNakagusuku and another is scheduled for February 4-11 at Nanjo City in 2008.

This photo exhibit is an attempt on our part to ensure that following genertaions will remember the past, tragic and horrible, as it was and also to remember the heroic efforts made by our grandmothers and grandfathers who worked to restore the island from the terrible destruction inflicted on Okinawa.

If some of your readers are willing to send in old photos of Okinawa to display at the exhibit we would be very much interested in hearing from them. We have received family photos from 14 former Okinawa residents and we are increasing the size of their pictures for display.

Older people have sent their pictures for us to scan and we have compensated them for the mailing expenses. If any of your readers would also like to live their memories intact on Okinawa permanently our society would be more than happy to display them at our bi-annual exhibits at various citizens halls on Okinawa. Thank you very much.
