Forgive - Don’t Forget chronicles the journey by an American who inherited a Japanese sword surrendered at the end of World War II to the family of its original owner in an attempt to better understand the past and build a bridge between cultures.
Forgive - Don’t Forget explores the connection—by way of a Japanese sword—between two very different cultures and the importance of remembrance. The Japanese sword is a symbol deeply embedded in Japan’s history and spiritual heritage. When an American who inherited a sword surrendered to his grandfather at the conclusion of World War II decides to search for its original owner and return it to his family, he runs into a host of seemingly insurmountable barriers. His quest ultimately leads to a better understanding of both American and Japanese cultures and helps bridge the gap between the two.
