Testimonies of the Battle of Okinawa are preserved in print and video
There remains little material evidence to tell what actually
befell the civilian victims during the Battle.
Only persons who could tell the truth on behalf of those residents who died
against their will are the survivors on the Battle, whose minds had long been
closed to others because of their tormenting memories of the war, gradually
started to talk about their experiences in order that their testimonies may
be passed on to the future generations. These testimonies speak the very
truth of history.
