University of California Press

This chapter discusses recent attempts to reprogram memories of Japanese colonialism in Korea and the post-colonial experiences of those Korean resident aliens, explaining that the Korean Atom Bomb Memorial has been a site where visitors remember the experiences of those who have been interpellated collectively as Koreans. It also shows how certain forms of remembering have induced coalitional identities within Hiroshima's politics, both local and translocal.

Keywords:   Japanese colonialism, Korea, post-colonial experiences, Korean resident aliens, Korean Atom Bomb, coalitional identities
