Il triciclo di Shinichi

August 06, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Hiroshima, 6 Agosto 1945. Shinichi Tetsutani (3 anni e 11 mesi) amava andare su questo triciclo. Quella mattina, era in sella davanti alla sua casa, quando, in un lampo improvviso, è stato gravemente ustionato. È morto quella notte. Il padre pensava fosse troppo giovane per essere sepolto in una tomba solitaria lontano da casa, e pensando che potesse ancora giocare con il triciclo, seppellì Shinichi con il triciclo nel cortile di casa.

Nell'estate del 1985, quarant'anni dopo, il padre ha riesumato i resti di Shinichi e li ha trasferiti nella tomba di famiglia.

Questo triciclo e casco, dopo aver dormito per 40 anni nel cortile con Shinichi, sono stati donati al Museo della Pace di Hiroshima.

 

Tricycle and metal helmet of Shinichi Tetsutani HiroshimaJjapanTricycle and metal helmet of Shinichi TetsutaniShinichi tetsutani (then 3 years and 11 months) loved to ride this tricycle. That morning, he was riding in front of his house when, in a sudden flash, he and his tricycle were badly burned. He died that night. His father felt he was too young to be buried in a lonely grave away from home, and thinking he could still play with the tricycle, he buried Shinichi with the tricycle in the backyard.

In the summer on 1985, forty years later, his father dug up Shinichi's remains and transferred them to the family grave.

This tricycle and helmet, after sleeping for 40 years in the backyard with Shinichi, were donated to the Peace Memorial Museum.
