3-1-4-2Resume that was never used

Donated by Atsumu Katayama

Kikue Katayama (17), a member of the Women Volunteer Corps, was exposed to the bombing at her mobilization worksite, a unit of the Army Marine Headquarters (commonly known as the Akatsuki Corps) in Ujina. Escaping serious injury, she was sent by the army to Kanawajima Island and engaged in the relief activities until September 10. At discharge, she was exhausted from work, but wrote this resume saying she would get a job when she recovered.

However, her health deteriorated. Toward the end of the year, she could not get up. Kikue died on May 19, 1946.

 

Story by Atsumu, Kikue’s younger brother:

My sister was always thinking about our family. Even after she was bedridden, she would say, “I’ll go to work when I get well. I’ll make your life easier.” I loved my gentle-hearted sister.
