An invitation from the Ministry of Culture & Heritage

Please join usat our new premises, Level 4, ASB House, 101 The Terrace to hear:

Remembering Occupied Japan by Alison Parr


Alison is Senior Oral Historian at the Ministry for Culture and Heritage, please join us to hear her talk about her new book, The Occupiers – New Zealand veterans remember post-war Japan. The book is based on in-depth interviews with 17 of the 12,000 Kiwi men and women who served in J Force during the occupation of Japan between 1946 and 1948.

Come and hear the recorded voices of contributors as they recollect their varied experiences – from their reactions to visiting Hiroshima and adjusting to a country broken by war, to their relationships with local people and the changed attitudes that grew from personal contact with Japanese civilians.

Important note:  We are in new premises at ASB House, 101 The Terrace.  Please enter from The Terrace onto Level 3 of ASB House. Follow the signs down the corridor to lifts which will take you to our reception area and seminar rooms on Level 4. 

You cannot access the building from Lambton Quay. ASB House is just up from Woodward Street on The Terrace. It is next to the Atlanta Café and Bar.

Date: Wednesday 2 May
Time: 12.15pm to 1.15pm
Place: ASB House, 101 The Terrace.

We look forward to welcoming you on Wednesday at lunchtime.
