UNESCO adds WWII Japanese detainees' records to world memory list

This site holds my father's records about internation in prison camp, located in Ukraine, republic of exUSSR(Allies), where he was kept after World War II. Although drawing is just a hobby for us, we feel obliged to use the Internet benefits and publish these historic drawings for you.
Regular war scenes are mostly tragic and describe murder and battles, while my father's drawings express basic emotions such as joy and anger, cheer and grief no matter if they belong to Japanese or Russian. Besides my father wishes to deliver a message to all the people that we all belong to one big family, where all wars are meaningless and must never do.
