Originally published: Tokyo : Iwanami Shoten Publishers, 2007Language/Translation Info: EnglishSummary: This work is a translation of book originally in Japanese recounting the experiences of Japanese professor’s visits to World War II memorials throughout Southeast Asia. He describes what happened during the war in the various countries, including the Philippines, and how the peoples commemorate and remember the war. He points out that in most countries, the war is remembered either to develop the nation (as in Singapore), or (as in the case of Thailand) to draw tourists. In many countries, the war is played down in order not to jeopardize relations with Japan. In the case of the Philippines, Dr. Hayase points out the unique situation of being in between the US and Japan, and relying on both after the war. He analyzes war memorials (in particular Corregidor) and Philippine school textbooks, among others. He is critical of Japanese attempts to forget the war and evade responsibility for it. - Prof. Ricardo T. Jose
