Explanation

This is a memento of Satoko Tsutsumi (14 years old at that time of the bombing), who was exposed to the atomic bomb in Iwakawa-machi, about 700 meters from the hypocenter. The rice in the lunch box was carbonized by the fires after the bombing. Satoko’s name and class number are written on the back of the smaller container.
