Japan Disasters Digital Archive Remembers 3.11

March 11, 2019

On this day of remembrance, we again offer our condolences to all who suffered losses in the disaster, already eight years in the past. The challenges of recovery and reconstruction continue, and we offer our support and admiration for the many strong efforts of Japanese people and organizations to meet these challenges.

We hope the Japan Disasters Digital Archive can offer a virtual space to allow people affected by this tragedy to preserve the record and the memory of their experience. We seek as well to enable people around the world to learn from the experience of this disaster. With these goals in mind, this year we have added valuable materials curated by three new archive partners, the Japan Atomic Energy Agency, the Japan Red Cross, and the city of Urayasu.

These materials, from diverse locations and perspectives, have significantly enriched the archive. We are grateful to our partners, old and new. We hope you will continue to find our archive a valuable resource, and we welcome your comments as well as suggestions.
