    A Japanese TV news report shows an interesting event that probably hasn’t received much attention in other countries. Here is an elderly Japanese man who has been allowed to visit North Korea, so he can pray for family members who died there in 1945:

    The man was a child living in Northern Korea when World War II came to an end. In the chaos the followed, his family tried to return to Japan. His mother and brother died in the process.

    They were unable to locate the exact location of their graves, so the man offered prayers at the former site of a detainment camp for Japanese.
