The prefecture produced and released an animation based on residents’ experiences of two sanatoriums in the area to let them know the history of discrimination and correct knowledge about leprosy.
There are two animations, each about 6 minutes. In the episode of Masao Ishida, who lives in Nagashima Aiseien (Setouchi City), he was brought to the garden without knowing anything when he was a child and was forced to work hard. It would help if you didn’t come in because the children will be riding tomorrow. “
The animation can be viewed from “Okayama Hansen’s Disease Awareness WEB”. A person in charge of the prefecture said, “I want you to know the pain of those who are invaded by human rights and think about familiar problems such as discrimination and bullying due to corona damage.”
