Plan exhibition "withdrawal exhibition to follow by comics"

By this plan exhibition, we introduce work about war and withdrawal of oneself that 11 comic artists saw in the days of child.
We lose ground of life in foreign land by defeat and come even through life in the dangerous situation, and there are various places of "repatriate from foreign countries" of approximately 3,200,000 come back to in Japan. There were people who pulled Japanese comics world later in this.
In comics to follow memory of young day, thought to want to tell is loaded their experiences with to adult with child knowing neither war nor withdrawal. These works grasp hand of my child tightly and trace love of parent toward Japan and the far-off distance and are full of life that was able to return. Thought not to forget people who live at the same time, and were not able to return is put.
