Special Exhibit Recognizing the 75th Anniversary of the End of WWII Is on Display at the Library: On display at the University of Idaho Library is a special collection which was donated to the university by Hiroshima University in Japan.

U of I responded with a book and gift of $5 to purchase a tree. A few years ago, U of I received a gift from the students from Hiroshima University to recognize the donation. The box included a set of manga about the bomb, copies of the correspondence from 1951-52 and roof tiles that had been blown off of a local building during the bomb blast and were recently dredged off the floor of the Hiroshima River. In recognition of the 75th anniversary of the event and the end of World War II, the materials are on display on the second floor of the library.
