English teachers tour WWII battle sites

Date Posted: 2001-10-23

The Assistant Language Teachers (ALT), a group of native speakers teaching English in schools in Okinawa, organized a field trip, Saturday, to various sites in Okinawa where the land battles had taken place during the WWII. The group visited the relics of the Commander Headquarter in Shuri, Army Hospital in Haebaru, Itokazugo cave in Tamagusuku Village, Peace Memorial Park in Itoman City and other places. A total of 21 foreign teachers from the United States, Britain and Australia participated in the trip.

Chotoku Genga, a teacher at the Urasoe Commercial High School, worked as a guide for the tour and said it is important to let foreigners know the reality of the war in which mostly ordinary people get killed.

Ramie Habib from Canada who promoted the trip said “All the war I have ever seen was viewed from the American side. My soul was moved as I saw those actual war relics in Okinawa.”
