Kids' Guernica at Kitakawasoe Elementary School in Japan

May 28, 2018,   A wonderful Kids’ Guernica painting was created by the sixth grade pupils of  Kitakawasoe Elementary School in Saga-city, Japan last year. In the period of Integrated Study, the pupils learned about peace and thought what they could for peace. Their school excursion to Nagasaki gave an opportunity to study about the misery of war and the important value of peace. They thought that they should tell what they had learned to as many as possible and decided to make a Kids’ Guernica painting. The executive committee of Kids’ Guernica led the workshop. After adding all the 94 pupils’ handprints, this peace painting was completed. They wish to express their thoughts to as many as possible.
