UNESCO World Heritage Center opened its research-report on July 2 about a UNESCo World Cultural Heritage in Japan, >"Sites of Japan's Meiji Industrial Revolution."
It stated that exhibition at "Industrial Heritage Information Center" (IHIC, in Shinjuku Ward, Tokyo), which was established by Tokyo, was insufficient as a measure to "to remember the victims" of Hashima coal mine (aka Battleship Island) in Nagasaki Pref., and requested to show "various testimonies" including "the darker side."
As managing-director of IHIC, I would like to counterargue against the report.

Concerning that Seoul requested to consider to delist >"Sites of Japan's Meiji Industrial Revolution" from UNESCO World Cultural Heritage, the Director of UNESCO World Heritage Center Mechtild Rossler explained that "(the standard of delisting is) when it loses 'excellent common value,' such as completeness and/or authenticity," while saying that "Delisting is an unique authority of World Heritage Committee."

When it became clear that delisting was impossible, in November in that year, Seoul expressed strong concern about IHIC to UNESCO.
In response to repeated requests by Seoul, under circumstances that a state of emergency declaration was issued due to COVIC-19 peril, UNESCO World Heritage Center decided to dispatch an inspection team to Japan.
To begin with, though member countries of the World Heritage Convention can use state sovereignty in historic interpretation, it's an unprecedented case to dispatch the inspection team about interpretation (understanding-promotion & information transmission), not in an issue of conservation.

It's from June 7 to 9 this year, when a joint inspection team of UNESCO and an advisory body of UNESCO, International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) visited Japan.
Initially, it's planned that three persons would visit Japan. However, among them, it's changed that an Australian and a Belgian would participate in it online, due to that vaccination of COVID-19 wasn't in time, while only a German woman would be dispatched.

It's her 1st visit to Japan for the German woman, and all three persons didn't have knowledge about Japanese history.
Though we submitted necessary materials in prior to the inspection, they had no background knowledges about the contents of exhibition at IHIC, including what's Sites of Japan's Meiji Industrial Revolution and the period of target of the legacy sites.

At the beginning, the Belgian expert kicked off the conference online.
"We would like to ask you questions based on the investigation items of this mission. There may be some questions that are not very pleasant for Japan. However, there are no other intentions. We would like you to take this as a necessary step in order to carry out the investigation from a neutral standpoint.
The items to be investigated are as follows;
- What kind of full history is exhibited at the IHIC?"
- What kind of information is provided to visitors, based on the interpretation strategy?"
- How do you continue the dialogue with the persons concerned?"
How do you address these issues, based on the resolution at the 39th World Heritage Committee, and the ambassador's statement in 2015?"

The "statement" means the remarks by Japanese ambassador to UNESCO Kuni Sato in July 2015, when Sites of Japan's Meiji Industrial Revolution was listed on UNESCO World Cultural Heritage.
Ambassador Sato said that "There were a large number of Koreans and others who were brought against their will, and forced to work under harsh conditions (in the 1940s)" at some of the sites, and "Japan has an intenton to take appropriate measures to remember the victims, including setting up an information center."

In prior to the inspection this time, persons concerning UNESCO and ICOMOS talked with Seoul at least twice in prior to visit to Japan.
In addition, UNESCO was contacted by a civic organization in Japan, "Network for Research on Forced Labor Mobilization," in advance.
The inspection team said that "UNESCO was provided much documents and various information from an organization in Japan."
What this means will be explained later.

From Japanese side, I, the managing-director or IHIC, and persons in charge of Foreign Ministry and the Cabinet Secretariat addressed the inspection to the IHIC.
Surprisingly, the inspection team wasn't interested so much in the value of the world heritage, while their interest was mostly focused on the historic materials room, "zone 3," where historic materials relevant Hashima were exhibited.
What they questioned befor hearing our explanation about the exhibition was "Where are the victims?"
It was just the same expression an executive of the S. Korean embassy in Japan used, who visited the IHIC.
It made me remind that person(s) concerning the "civic organization" made the same question.

When I answered that "Primary materials and testimonies by persons concerned are exhibited as they are," they once again questioned that "There are no victims."
When I replied that "When it comes to coal mine accidents, relevant information is exhibited, and it often appears in the testimonies by former islanders," they qestioned that "Where are Koreans?", then I answered that "There is a memorandum written by a Korean, and there are also many testimonies recorded by Koreans. Therefore, it's planned to be placed in the future."

The "victims" mentioned by Ambassador Sato were meant those, who suffered accidents or disasters or died while engaged in labor during the war at facilities such as coal mines and factories, regardless of their place of origin. However, it seemed that the inspection team was only interested in Koreans.
Along the way, the Australian expert used a term to describe Koreans as "POW," so that I pointed out that they weren't POW.

Btw, it's questioned about POW at Miike coal mine (Fukuoka) during the war.
It's covered in the discussion that POW of allied forces and POW of the Chinese Communist Party's forcesand Nationalist Party's forces worked, and I talked about such as that Chinese POW divided between CCP forces and Nationalist Party forces just after the end of WW2, gun fight(s) was done, and U.S. occupation forces settled the case, Chinese attacked a police station(s), and many Japanese women were raped in town. However, they didn't pay attention to the Japanese victims.

The inspection team was formally invited by Tokyo.
However, taking their behavior into consideration, it could be felt that they relied on the documents submitted by Seoul to UNESCO in Nov. last year, and the materials compiled by the civic organization in Japan, "Network for Research on Forced Labor Mobilization."

In the submitted document, Seoul expressed its concern about IHIC regarding the interpretation strategy implemented by Tokyo as follows:
1). It doesn't meet the requirements for exhibiting the whole history of each facility, and "conserving records of the victims of forced labor," that were issued at the time of the listing in 2015.
2). Compared to facilities such as the Rammelsberg Mine and the Volklingen Ironworks (* Volklinger Hutte) in Germany, which acknowledges the dark side of history, and exhibition is done in a way to mourn for the victims, there are no such exhibitions in the IHIC.
3). No dialogues are done with relevant organizations such as Seoul and civic organizations in Japan.

I would like to refute the arguments on S. Korean side as follows;
The interpretation of "victim" depends on person, country and location.
When handling the word victim in general consideration, we must be careful because it could ignite a discussion that who is the perpetrator.
At the IHIC, when it comes to occupational accidents at the site, in case that a clear record of an accident is left, it's introduced regardless of the nationalities of the victims.
We mainly conserve historical materials and testimonies whose origins are clear, and have high evidence value, such as newspaper articles, memoirs, and accident records. In addition, we plan to increase the number of archives (record storage), and make them reflect in the exhibition.

> ؍{́AhCc̓WYƈY̓W̖͔͗ƂėᎦ邪AQ풆AiXEhCcɂJ͑ɔނȂJ̗jłA؍hCc̗OɓKp悤Ƃ̂ɂ͖B
Seoul exemplifies the German exhibitions as a model example of exhibitions at the IHIC. However, during World War II, labor forced by Nazi Germany was an unparalleled history of forced labor. Therefore, it's unreasonable for S. Korea to attempt to apply the German cases to other countries.

Under the circumstance of labor shortage, based on National Mobilization Law (Apr. 1939), Japan carried out recruitment of Korean workers by public placement by Government-General of Chosen.
From Sept., 1944, based on National Requisition Ordinance, it carried out labor mobilization of Koreans.

History must be faithfully historical, without dramatization.
Labor at Japanese business sites during WW2 was extremely tough at the end of WW2, due to poor food conditions and a shortage of materials.
However, at Hashima -- a giant submarine coal mine which was mechanized before outbreak of the war -- in order to show how the industrial warriors including the youth of conscrpted workers, who supported the production increase system, supported the workplace, and what conditions the business site of Hashima was in, the correct exhibition based on testimonies by concerned persons and the primary materials is needed.

Until now, the memories of industrial business sites haven't been sufficiently recorded and organized.
The storage locations of primary historic materials are diffused, and enormous work is required to archive them.
When it comes Hashima coal mine, nearly 100,000 historical materials and photographs are currently being collected, but archiving will take time.

In many secondary historical materials (collections of materials, books, etc.), editors' activity-theory was developed in the process of arranging, and most of them were written from the standpoint to grill the responsibility of harming of companies as a responsibility for war. However, there is ambiguity in the concrete detailed depiction of facilities and contents of work at labor sites, and living scenery, so that they lack accurate information.
It can be seen that the editor's knowledge of the business sites is insufficient.

The testimonies by ones who know Hashima during WW2 were rarely recorded in the video until I did so.
The interpretation of history should be based neither "politics" nor "movement," but should be exhibited based on primary historical materials and testimonies. If there were 100 researchers, there would be 100 interpretations.
The role of the IHIC is to provide accurate primary historic materials, while interpretation should be left to every and each researcher.

The S. Korean side argues that the IHIC doesn't have a dialogue, but it does.
Since its opening, though it's restricted due to COVID-19, many persons visited the IHIC.
Among them, officials of the S. Korean embassy in Japan, media in S. Korea, civic organizations such as Network for Research on Forced Labor Mobilization, and media.
Rather, what I spent most of my time was interacting with people with different opinions.
I think that I addressed any question sincerely for a long time.

The inspection team said that they recognized that the all former islanders who testified were "the children of the workers around that time."
It's a complete misunderstanding.
Anyway, when I heard that, I remembered that reporters of "Weekly Friday" and The Asahi Shimbun made the same question.
I was questioned so by the Belgian investigator at the beginning, and by the German women several times. Therefore I explained that "They, who are exhibited here, worked as wartime workers with the Korean Peninsula natives and Chinese POW(s)," and I started to introduce every and each word of testimonies by concerned persons, who worked in tunnels of Hashima coal mine during the war. As the result, the German woman closed her mouth with embarrassed facial expression.
Were the testimony by the concerned persons inconvenient?

"Though many people, who lived in Hashima, concretely testified, does it judge they are lies? Life on Hashima can only be understood by the ones who lived on Hashima," (Yoichi Nakamura).
"I'm raged. After the end of the war, the occupation forces came and investigated whether forced labor was done or not on the island. It should be recorded properly that it wasn't done. Forced labor was never done on the island. What part S. Korea did fake historical facts, which should be investigated thoroughly," (Hideo Kaji).
"Though work at the coal mine was surely tough. it's well paid, that both Japanese and Koreans came. We never discriminated them as they were Koreans," (Kuniho Takasaki).

Sites of Japan's Meiji Industrial Revolution testifies the rise of industrial Japan in the Meiji period, from the middle of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century, namely, in the middle of the 19th century, the oriental island country which closed its doors to Western science rapidly industrialized, and laid the foundation for an industrial country with heavy industry (iron and steel making, shipbuilding, and coal industries).
The Industrial Revolutionary Heritage -- which consists of 23 facilities in 11 cities in 8 prefectures, Iwate, Shizuoka, Yamaguchi, Fukuoka, Saga, Nagasaki, Kumamoto, and Kagoshima -- was listed as a heritage with outstanding universal value as a whole.

I told the inspectors, which questioned "Where are the victims?" without knowing such process.
"As it's like an UNESCO war crimes court, that it's not fair. We neither fake nor hide the facts. In the first place, neither I nor you are qualified to judge history. It deviates from the role of UNESCO."

Before the inspection team visited Japan, UNESCO was reportedly provided historical materials from Seoul and member(s) of Network for Research on Forced Labor Mobilization, which were the premise of the inspection.
Here, I would like to explain that Network for Research on Forced Labor Mobilization is not just a simple "civic organization," but excellent professional activists.

The organization, which was established in 2005, has mainly carried out investigation and research on Koreans (they describe them as "conscripted workers"), and has carried activity out to spread "history of forced labor" at coal mines and munitions factories during the war.
One of its' goals is to establish a "Memory, Responsibility, and Future Foundation" by Japan and S. Korea, just as Germany reconsidered crimes by Nazi, and established a foundation with funds from "war criminal companies."

According to symposiums presided by them and their publications, the organization has carried activity out to find plaintiffs in lawsuits filed by by organization(s) in S. Korea against Japanese companies, and support the lawsuits.
The plaintiffs mean all Koreans, who worked in Japan between from 1910, when Japan annexed (S)Korea, to 1945.

Members of the network were founders of an association to support the former conscripted workers lawsuit against Nippon Steel , and held a press briefing with the plaintiffs after the lawsuit in S. Korea.
They even visited Nippon Steel with a civic organization in S. Korea, "Institute for Research in Collaborationist Activities" and lawyers on the plaintiff's side.
It's also a concerned-party to carried out the propaganda campaign "Battleship Island was a hell island," at a side event hosted by the Institute for Research in Collaborationist Activities, at the 39th World Heritage Committee held in Bonn, Germany in 2015.

Organizations close to Seoul, such as S. Korean UNESCO committee and Institute for Research in Collaborationist Activities, also participated in it.

What if members of Network for Research on Forced Labor Mobilization were involved in the exhibition at the IHIC?
It would be difficult to realize the "neutral" exhibition, which is requested by UNESCO.
As can be seen in the close cooperation between the network and organizations on S. Korean side, it's forecasted that the exhibition plan following the intention of Seoul will be presented.

The IHIC is not a site of political movement by the activists, who have close connection with the plaintiffs involved in so-called conscripted workers lawsuits.
UNESCO World Heritage also play a role in building a fort of peace.

There is also an idea proposed by the IHIC on UNESCO side.
It's a dialogue between former Hashima islanders and Koo Yeon-cheol, a S. Korean who claims to live on Hashima for six years.
Via rallies and media, Koo Yeon-cheol has enthusiastically appealed that "Koreans were abused."

Koo Yeon-cheol wrote in his "autobiography" that he went the school on Hashima for six years, and took a role of class president as he was excellent in academic result. However, even though we interviewed with more than 70 former islanders, none of them in the same generation had a memory of Koo Yeon-cheol.
Names of Koreans are also noted in the list of alumni associations of the school on Hashima, but the name of Koo Yeon-cheol isn't included.
Nevertheless, as Koo Yeon-cheol is active as a "witness" who lived on Battleship Island, that we expect him to exchange opinions with former islanders.

Around the time when this draft will be published, a deliberation at the UNESCO World Heritage Committee will be closed.
S. Korea has developed a campaign to leave Hashima's dark history in influential people (influencers), by spending huge amounts of public relations and publicity expenses.
However, even if the world's governmental officials and influencers chorused loudly, it would be impossible to create something out of nothing.
The former islanders addressed to make long time testimonies with thinking that "this is a will," while they were not in good physical condition.
