Summary
  • The wings of the paper crane were believed to carry souls up to paradise. (I have a feeling that butterflies also perform this role - note the film “Ghost” and also personal stories from the abroad Arrow Cafe, Port Arthur massacre, Tasmania). In addition if one folded 1000 origami cranes, ones wish would come true. This has become a symbol of hope and healing in challenging times.The Japanese War Cemetery in Cowra, New South Wales is the only one in Australia now and the land was ceded to the Japanese in 1963. Internment of Japanese citizens during the Pacific War (WWII) took part in many parts of the world under allied control. In fact, internment of nationals became eventually part of the horror of the war, ending in the Final Solution that saw millions of Jews and other nationalities exterminated under the Nazi Regime.In Australia, 1140 Japanese citizens were interned, later joined by 3200 further citizens transferred from New Zealand, New Caledonia and the Dutch East Indies. Included were also a number of Taiwanese and one Korean as they were regarded as Japanese at the time because of occupation by Japan. Men were sent to Loveday in South Australia and Hay in New South Wales, while women went to Tatura in Victoria. 193 people died while interned, mainly from diseases contracted in the camps. They were originally buried in those camps but in 1964, the remains were transferred to the Cowra War Cemetery. Ten were placed in the POW section as they were classified as POW Merchant seamen.In total there are 523 graves which also include 231 Japanese soldiers killed during the August 1944 Cowra Breakout and also Japanese air crew shot down over northern Australia during the raids on Darwin and other locations in the north. The Australian Cemetery adjacent holds the bodies of four soldiers killed during the Breakout and other servicemen killed during training at the local military camp.
