Donated by Shigeko Orimen

Shigeru Orimen (13), a first-year student at Second Hiroshima Prefectural Junior High School, was exposed to the A-bomb and died at his building demolition worksite. This scorched lunch box and water bottle were found beneath his burned, skeletal remains by his mother. In the lunch box were a mixture of rice and barley, soy beans, and sautéed shredded potato. Shigeru left home looking forward to this lunch, but never got to eat it.
