2012.08.16  「終戦の日」ではなく、「敗戦の日」だとおもうのです。

きのう8月15日は、NHKテレビ・ラジオでも、
新聞でも「終戦の日」という言葉が目立ちました。

でも、「敗戦の日」というのがほんとうではないか、
とぼくは思うのです。
1945年8月6日は広島市民が、9日は長崎市民が
歴史上初めての原爆投下によって大量に殺されました。
これはアウシュビッツを超える大虐殺に思えます。
(それを人道的な観点から問う声はあまり聞えません)

あの、あまりにも悲惨な地獄のあとで、日本は
「無条件降伏」し、やっと戦争が終わりました。
完膚なきまでの敗け戦、ボロ切れのような敗戦です。
「終戦の日」という穏やかな終わり方ではなかった。
その事実を思い、悲劇を噛みしめて310万人の戦没者、
また殺害してきた相手国の死者、被害者たちすべての
霊を祀る日、それが8月15日なのだと思うのです。

これが歴史の事実。こうした本質を、日本人は
避けて通ろう、ごまかそうとする傾向があるようです。
今に至る戦後の政治も行政も、社会も
事実を事実として認めたがらない傾向を感じます。
あすの日本を考えるとき、いちばん大切なのは
ものごとの「本質」を考えることではないでしょうか。

    8月15日というのは、玉音放送で、戦争が終わることを告げられ、大部分の日本国民が心の中での戦争を終えた日だから「終戦の日」なのです。
    もし「敗戦の日」」というのを作るのであれば、ポツダム宣言の受諾を連合国に通知した通知した8月14日、もしくは降伏文書への調印の9月2日が妥当です。

    私が憂えたのは81歳の高齢になって、あの敗戦の放送を聞いた日のことを思い、広島、長崎の悲劇を思うとき、「終戦の日」といって済ましてしまうのは、歴史の事実を考えないことになりはしないかと思ったのです。
