Profile
The aim of NET-GTAS, the Network of Translators for the Globalization of the Testimonies of Atomic Bomb Survivors, is to express and diffuse the experiences of Atomic-Bomb victims through video interviews with the survivors. In order to overcome the language barriers, as most survivors speak only Japanese, the interviews are being translated into as many different languages as possible by NET-GTAS volunteers.
Thirteen professors from Kyoto University of Foreign Studies, the University of Tsukuba and Yokohama National University formed the nucleus of this project and subsequently, in January 2014, we established NET-GTAS thanks to an expanded co-operation of regular members and supporters comprised of professors and translators involved in language education.
Since 2014, NET-GTAS has been started to work on translating the video interviews of Atomic-Bomb survivors produced by the Hiroshima National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims (http://www.hiro-tsuitokinenkan.go.jp) into English, Chinese, Korean, German and French. The interviews will be posted on the HP of our internet site Global Network HP (http://www.global-peace.go.jp), which is produced with the National Peace Memorial Hall for Atomic Bomb Victims in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
NET-GTAS is working on not only translating, but also University seminars, which is included various fields such as linguistics, pedagogy and sociology related to the project, and collecting the documents and the other materials on the study of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
This project has started with 40 members (including office members) and currently, (February 2017) it has more than 160 participants in total : approximately 70 from overseas and 90 Japanese. The office (net-gtas@kufs.ac.jp) is located at Kyoto University of Foreign Studies. NET-GTAS has been supported to develop our by a lot of supporters who are young researchers and students.

My thoughts when I watched Fumiko Amano’s testimony about the Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima

私は米国の核兵器開発のためのマンハッタン計画から途中離脱した科学者、ジョセフ・ロートブラットを思い出した。

Fumiko Amano’s story made me think about Joseph Rotblat, a brave pioneer in the opposition to nuclear weapons that began to grow in the years after the 1945 bombings.
He was a Polish physicist working on the Manhattan Project to develop the bombs which were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In 1944 one of the scientists on the team refused to continue working on the bomb. It was Joseph Rotblat. He was the only one.
If the project had been stopped, Fumiko Amano’s brother would not have died. She would not witnessed the Hiroshima horror. But her brother would have lived only if all other scientists in the world refused to work on the bombs and for war. Rotblat believed that scientists should have a code of moral conduct.
In 1955, 60 years ago, along with Hideki Yukawa of Japan, he was one of the 11 people who signed the Albert Einstein-Bertrand Russell Manifesto which called on the scientists of the world to recognize the threat of nuclear weapons. The declaration says “Remember your Humanity and forget the rest.”
Fumiko Amano reminds us that in the 70th year since the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, although nuclear weapons have not been used again, war is still used as away to solve problems and gain power. Her experience is the real story of war. (京都外国語大学国際教養学科長 NET-GTAS幹事)
