Arizona Memorial, Pear Harbor, Oahu, Hawaii (Nov. 1980)

Arizona Memorial, Pear Harbor, Oahu, Hawaii (Nov. 1980)
The USS Arizona Memorial, located at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii, marks the resting place of 1,102 of the 1,177 sailors and marines killed on the USS Arizona (BB-39) during the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941 and commemorates the events of that day. The attack on Pearl Harbor and the island of Oʻahu was the action that led to the United States' direct involvement in World War II.

The memorial, built in 1962, is visited by more than one million people annually. Accessible only by boat, it straddles the sunken hull of the battleship without touching it. Historical information about the attack, shuttle boats to and from the memorial, and general visitor services are available at the associated USS Arizona Memorial Visitor Center, which opened in 1980 and is operated by the National Park Service. The sunken remains of the battleship were declared a National Historic Landmark on 5 May 1989.

Das USS Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, markiert die Ruhestätte von 1102 der 1177 Seeleute, die beim Untergang der USS Arizona ums Leben kamen. Ausgelöst wurde dieser durch den japanischen Angriff auf Pearl Harbor am 7. Dezember 1941. Das Bauwerk erinnert an die Ereignisse dieses Tages, woraufhin die USA in den Zweiten Weltkrieg eintraten.

Das 1962 eingeweihte Mahnmal, das jährlich von über einer Million Menschen besichtigt wird, überspannt den Rumpf des gesunkenen Kriegsschiffes ohne diesen zu berühren. Seit seiner Eröffnung im Jahr 1980 wird das USS-Arizona-Memorial-Besucherzentrum vom National Park Service gemeinsam mit dem Mahnmal betrieben. Es bietet dem Besucher historische Informationen über den Angriff, Fahrten mit Pendelbooten zum Mahnmal und weitere Besucherdienste. Das Wrack der Arizona wurde am 5. Mai 1989 zur National Historic Landmark ernannt.

Jon this has become an iconic image of Pearl Harbor that produced Franklin Roosevelt's speech about the day that will live in infamy. If your interested and have time: www.u-s-history.com/pages/h1649.html

I have not seen this in person but it moves me to tears each time I see the image, I must say it's not the only memorial to do so.

So many moving memorials around the world ... it seems like a vicious cycle with wars ... they never seem to end. :(

Hab ich auch noch nie gesehen, passt hervorragend zur Challenge - aber, hoffen wir, dass wir in Zukunft nicht noch mehr solcher Mahnmale brauchen!

Jean Claude Juncker hat mal gesagt: "Wer an Europa zweifelt, sollte einen Soldatenfriedhof besuchen". Hinzuzufügen ist dem nur, dass wir in einer so friedlichen Zeit leben, wie Mitteleuropa sie über 1000 Jahre nicht erlebt hat. 70 Jahre ohne Krieg! Hoffen wir alle, dass das so bleibt, auch wenn viele Gegenden der Welt noch einen weiten Weg vor sich haben. Danke dir und LG Lutz
