The devastating 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear accident at Fukushima Daiichi power plant changed the lives of countless people. In this episode, we focus on Ukedo Elementary School in Namie Town, Fukushima. All ninety-three children who were there at the time had to evacuate outside the prefecture and have been separated ever since. With the ruins of the school serving as an official memorial to the disaster since last year, we asked them to share with us their feelings about what they have been through.
