Remembering lost loved ones
Mourners drop flowers into the sea Nov. 28 at the second
government-sponsored memorial service for the more than 1,500
civilians who died when their evacuation ship sank after being
torpedoed by a U.S. submarine during World War II. The ceremony was
held on a ferry in the East China Sea, 10 kilometers northwest of
Akuseki Island in Kagoshima Prefecture, where the Tsushima Maru sank
Aug. 22, 1944.
