Object Lesson: One Man’s Life Dedicated to Peace
While the 1912 gift of cherry blossom trees from the city of Tokyo to Washington, D.C. is an enduring symbol of the US–Japan friendship, former Japanese Ambassador Hirosi Saito also played an important role in our friendship in the 1930s. Mari Nakahara, co-author of the book Cherry Blossom: Sakura Collections from the Library of Congress, will introduce the Library collections related to Ambassador Saito, through which people may learn about him and his efforts to promote peace in the years before the outbreak of World War II. His granddaughter Tomiko Kagei will also join our conversation. This event will be recorded.

Individuals requiring accommodations for any of these events are requested to submit a request at least five business days in advance by contacting (202) 707-6362 or ADA@loc.gov.
