The story of a new wartime survivor will be growing at the Cape Town Holocaust Centre.A tree was planted for the 72nd commemoration of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan.The sapling was nurtured from a seed of a 300-year-old gingko tree that survived the horrors of the bomb in the Japanese city in 1945. In 2012, the seed was sent to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens by second-generation atomic bomb survivor Tomoko Watanabe, who is the co-founder of the Green Legacy Hiroshima Initiative, in conjunction with ANT-Hiroshima, the Asian Network Trust. Kirstenbosch gardeners have spent the past five years growing the sapling. This tree was planted by Watanabe and holocaust survivor Miriam Lichterman in a moving ceremony at the Cape Town Holocaust Centre on Tuesday 15 August. An exhibition commemorating 72 years since the nuclear bombs were dropped, called “The Atomic bomb and human rights”, is on at the centre until Thursday 14 September.
