Hanaoka Monogatari (花岡ものがたり)



Hanaoka Monogatari(花岡ものがたり),一部由新居広治、牧大介、滝平二郎,以及诗人原太郎共同著作的57篇「木雕连作版画」,於1951年5月首次出版。这部木刻连环画集,被一小撮有良知和厌恶战争的日本人,视为人类の遗产。作者们用樱花木板,通过木刻和叙事诗,来记载并揭露,日寇在二战时,掳迫虐杀残害中国劳工的另一宗惨案。

1945年8月15日,日本战败投降;初秋时分,一群美军来到日本秋田县(Akita)北部的花冈,在鹿岛建设株式会社的中山寮( ちゅうざんりょうーChusan Dormitory)附近,发现了许多乱葬岗、一大堆被乱弃而没有掩埋的尸体、在环境异常恶劣的集中营里,囚禁着一群瘦弱奄奄待毙的中国人。由是揭发了一段惨绝人寰的「花冈事件」。

鹿岛-龟尾(Kajima-gumi),是当时日本最大的建筑和公共工程公司之一,表面上说是为了要强化日本战争经济,因为劳工的短缺不足,从1944年8月至1945年6月之间,日寇从中国北部的五个省,抓捕近千名中国平民和战俘,分成3批海运到花冈的鹿岛建设公司做苦劳。三井(Mitsui )、三菱(Mitsubishi)和大多数其他工业,也加入强迫劳动和奴役俘虏的罪行。

当时在鹿岛工作的,还有其他韩国义务兵、盟军战俘以及日本劳工。但是,中国劳工就特别受到最严峻的残酷折磨,他们被鹿岛组的监工当着畜牲来对待。每天,中国劳工被迫做超过16小时的苦劳;在铜矿井里劳作、修整道路、挖掘河床修改河道,却仅以橡子面、苹果渣和米糠充饥。严冬下也是身着单衣,足穿草鞋,在冰冷刺骨的泥水中劳动。严重的饥饿、劳累,加上每天被凶残的日本监工殴打虐杀,半年不到,就死了130多人。

1945年6月30日,中国工人在中山寮发起了暴动反抗,杀了4个日本监工然后逃走。2万个日本军警把逃往神山(かみやま)、旧松峰(まつみね)和狮子ヶ森(ししがもり)的中国劳工围捕枪杀,被抓回的,遭受更严厉的酷刑。酷暑的7月,中国劳工被捆绑着跪在铺着石子的共楽館前广场上,白天在烈日下暴晒,夜里被雨淋;3天后,广场上尸横遍地。
据统计,二战时期,日寇曾经强掳4万多中国人到日本充当劳工,其中被掳去花冈为鹿岛组做苦工的986人,饿死病死被虐死杀死的共有418人。




[The Ballad of Hanaoka]

 I single-cropped summers, lumbered winters;

 sold my daughter but was robbed of my land.

 Now that I'm homeless, where else can I go?

Hanaoka in the north; to Hanaoka, ho!

 Azaleas smile so sweet each spring,

but for the last hundred years miners stagger and drop.

In the bowels of the earth, where treasure's to find,

the bones cry out; the copper mine.

Every time there's war, the miners' ranks grow,

and so does the mine-owner's purse.

The Hanaoka copper mine; Hell's very worst. '




[Kajima Construction ]

 " Chuzan Dorm" may not sound bad,

but it was the Main Street of Hell.

There began the treatment, painful to watch,

 of the nine hundred Chinese.

Day after day we averted our eyes.

If their ranks were a bit sloppy

on the road to the work site, they'd be abused,

knocked down with cudgels yea thick,

half - murdered.

They were led by veterans of the anti-Japan war,

men of the Eighth Route Army, cream of the cream,

so Japanese militarists and the Wang regime agreed

 to bring them here

to kill their morale.




[Poison weed ]

 Ground-up acorns,apple peels, rice bran, water:

even horses wouldn't eat the stuff

they gave these men to eat.

What on earth did the bosses do with the rations?

Seems the Kajima Construction bigwigs sold them on the black market.

So the men ate trampled apple peels,

 ate up all  the roadside weeds;

some ate poison weed and died.

 Those still, amazingly, on their feet,

utterly malnourished,

clenched their teeth

held on, survived.

To what end?

Ah, to what end?




[Setting Out]

The Chinese tore down phone lines,

seized weapons,

and set off.

Scattering for now

 to bide their time:

Head for the woods!

For the shelter of the woods!

In the pitch black, feet feeling their way,

 voices raised in liberation songs like a far-off ocean's roar,

they dispersed.





[The Leader and His Men]

Ah, that leader——

even reduced to skin and bones,

that steely leader knew no fear.

Still——he couldn't win.

On that pathetic battlefield,

the men dropped, were captured one by one.

 He fought , fell back, finally disappeared from sight.




[ Dog meat Stew]

 We saw it all ——

the young Chinese brought in

like game on a pole,

bones broken, arms wrenched off:

not a single one groaned.

The   men who brought them to the police station in Odate

boasted, " You're dog meat stew."

The landlords' fear, their hateful looks,

 the derision of the "kempei ".

Tied up, unable to resist, again and again

they were stabbed with bamboo spears, struck with cudgels.

The gleam in their eyes then,

 their defiance,

their contempt, as if for dogs,

 their silent, shining eyes.




[ Pools of Blood ]

Were they rotten fish?

Dead horses? Still bound in twos,

they were kicked off the trucks in a heep.

Hanaoka Community Hall square

 is stained even now with their blood.

Their blood will never be wiped away.

So long as two-legged beasts still exist in this world,

even now, in that square the stains remain.




 [ Bleached Bones]

In the fields of Ubasawa, even now,

 bones surface all the time.

 As rain erodes the dirt,

 bones surface , flesh rotted off.

The bones of those who died

 at the hands of TOJO, HIROHITO, their underlings

are exposed to rain, to wind——

as if to say, " This country never lacks

for those who torment and exploit the people."

 We're still finding

evidence of the cruelty

of capitalists, landlords, police.





 [ Those Who Plan War]

White with fear, the dogs- capitalists, landlords——

went crying to Mr. America.

KAJIMA bosses, chief of the " Kempeitai",

governor, police chief, chief of the thought police,

leaders of the reservists' association and the yokusan youth group——

all alike bloody murderers:

 they did it, but what happened to them?

Underlings were punished only for minor war crimes;

big- shot war criminals made big bucks once again.

 Hanaoka today is the military base of a foreign country.

Those guys are already preparing

for the next war,

 planning to turn us laborers and farm people

into slaves, human bullets.

  1. 用这木雕出来的刻画很有意思。
    很值得那出来做展览。

    最近中国在南沙群岛建了很多很大的建筑工程。
    我们这些小邻居越南、菲律宾,马来西亚只敢静静看。

    你什么时候和我们分析一下这南沙群岛到底应该怎么分才公平呢?

    1. 幸亏现在中国在军力方面够强,可以守住南海,不然美国的军事基地,早已遍布南沙群岛。美国利用它的马仔越南和菲律宾当烂鬼打手,天天在那边叫嚣搞搞震,目的就是要霸占南海。

市外果园

在霹雳州的近打县、碌柚故乡打扪(Tambun)的隔邻,有个小镇叫做红毛丹(Tanjung Rambutan)。红毛丹不是因为水果而著名,只是因为那里有一座104年历史的红毛丹精神病院(Ulu Kinta Mental Hospital),后来改称红毛丹幸福医院。
许多年以前,老童鞋在红毛丹购下一块山坡上的土地,经过了几千个挥汗如雨的日子,从最初的一片荒芜之地,如今被打造成一个环境优美、足以令人身处其中而流连忘返的美丽果园。





 踏入园里,迎面走来一只脸带笑容的狗狗。

“哈囖!欢迎光临,我叫Handsome boy,我是这里的总管。”




除了Handsome Boy,还有一头把尾羽展开呈扇形的雄火鸡,寸步不离的在访客身边踱过来又踱过去,偶而还用他的尖嘴往客人的小腿敲啄一下,好像一名威严又高傲的警卫长,努力在执行着自己的任务。




只见不远处,有只胖嘟嘟的雄性胡须鸡,竞然喜欢和颜色一点都不鲜艳的雌火鸡走在一齐。雌火鸡最近每天都下蛋,好给她的主人进补。“




“ 不要拍不要拍!对着镜头我们是会很害羞的啦!”




“轧轧轧轧轧轧,有陌生人来了,放我们出来,我们要出来!轧轧轧轧轧轧------------”




这是园里的两位美少女警卫,每天跟随着Handsome boy跑上跑下, 仍在实习当中。



“嗡嗡嗡,嗡嗡嗡,我们是一群小小小蜜蜂;来匆匆,去匆匆,大家勤力去做工。”





“Handsome boy,这是什么花呀?”

“杨桃花都没见过么?哎哟,原来这些城市人是那么山芭的,真是无眼睇咯!”







“不要放辣椒”

印象中,四川菜的特征,除了辣、麻、油大,许多还是冷冰冰油腻腻的凉菜。四川人连炒包菜都要撒一把花椒下去,还记得当年那股恐怖的花椒味,让俺在将要离开成都的那顿午饭中,仅以白粥裹腹!

今次的东川行,发现南面一带的云南少数民族真是超爱吃辣,几乎每样菜都是以辣为主。在旅店的餐厅里吃饭,只见一锅红红油油的辣椒汤里面泡着咱们心目中最美味的kampung鸡,捞块肉上来,摔掉红油,放入口里,就是辣得不行,对俺来说,真是暴殄天物咯!

接下来一锅云南美食酸辣鱼汤被捧上桌,只见鱼也是躺在油亮的红水中,还有荀片炒猪肉、豆腐、青菜等等,没一样是不放辣椒的。本来是很好吃的一碟菠菜,岂知又加进了辣椒,这里的不知啥辣椒,比咱们 kampung 的小辣椒可辣上好几倍,辣得喉干舌烫,咳得眼泪鼻涕直喷。学乖了, 接下来的每一餐都得额外交待,“不要放辣椒”,如此方能吃上几顿好饭。




说起来,能让咱们吃饭吃得最开心、最心满意足的,莫过於在途中的农家小饭馆里用餐,因为在这里,咱们可以和掌厨的商量煮那一些不必放辣椒的餸菜。

“大姐,这个土鸡如果要煮汤你们通常怎么做?”

(放养的土鸡肉比较结实,俺认为用来煮汤是最恰当的,有鲜甜的肉吃,还可以喝到美味的鸡汤。)

“加几片当归,放几粒红枣煮鸡汤如何?”

“可以可以!”

(窗外,只见妹妹蹲着在拔鸡毛了!)



“排骨你们怎么做?”

“白萝卜煮排骨汤怎样?”

 “可以可以!”

他们的白萝卜就种在屋后的空地上,硬梆梆的排骨,也唯有煮汤才能吃啊!用汽压锅压一压,很快的,红枣当归鸡汤,白萝卜排骨汤上桌了。当然还有青葱炒蛋、大豆芽煮肉碎、豆味香浓的豆腐、没有放辣椒白白清甜的鱼汤和鱼等等。新鲜的食材,简单的烹煮,都是原汁原味,配以本土优质的米所煮出来的饭,咱们可以把两锅汤和肉,以及其他菜肴,全部吃个盘底朝天,滴汤不剩。

在这些地方,可别奢望店家能把排骨来个或焖或炸或炖,他们连蒸水蛋是啥东东也不知道,而是鸡蛋只能配后院的青葱来炒。这里的农民依然保存着一贯的单纯和简朴,有次俺教一个厨娘倒点酱油加点水到锅里煮热,淋在那些看来已经摆了好些时候的卤鸡上面,讲了好几遍,那个大姐对着我一直笑却不断摇头,就是不明白也搞不懂俺的意思,最后我也唯有投降放弃,乖乖回桌去啃那碟放凉了的卤鸡。

神农架和神农氏

在湖北省西部边陲,有片总面积约3千多平方公里的生态区域,地名好特别,叫做「神农架」,好像有点神秘感,让人有很想去那边一探究竟的欲望。据说神农架人文历史久远,早在20多万年前,就有古人类在此活动。



为何这块森林地域会叫做「神农架」呢?原来是和焱帝神农氏有关系的。
传说中:远古时代,五谷和杂草、药物与百花全混在一块成长,当时的人都搞不懂那些可以吃、那些是可以用来治病的。为了能帮老百姓治病和填饱他们的肚子,这个人身牛首、除四肢和脑袋外身体透明的部落首领,带着臣民往西北大山走去。走了七七四十九天,来到一座高山上,但见此处山势陡峭,森林遍野,山上长满了奇花异草,老远就可以闻到花草的香气。



神农率众打算继续往前走,突然从峡谷窜出一群狼蛇虎豹,把他们团团围住。神农让臣民挥舞神鞭,把一批又一批的野兽赶走,打了七天七夜,方把野兽全部赶跑。进了峡谷,来到一座山脚下,山的上半截插在云彩里,四面是刀切崖,长满青苔、溜光水滑的崖上挂着瀑布。这时,有几只金丝猴,顺着高悬的古藤和横倒在崖边的朽木攀爬跳跃,神农灵机一动,教臣民砍木杆,割藤条,靠着山崖搭成架子,实行“架木为梯,以助攀缘”。从春到夏,从秋到冬,不管刮风下雨还是飞雪结冰,一天搭上一层木架,从不停工,搭了一整年,共搭了三百六十层方到达山顶。



山上密密丛丛、遍地是红、绿、白、黄各色各样的花草世界。神农亲尝百草,由於他的身体是透明的,如果内臟呈现黑色,就知道那种草药是有毒,什么草药对於人体那一个部位有影响。为了替老百姓找医药,找可以裹腹的粮草,神农教臣民们在山上栽种冷杉,当做城墙防野兽,“ 架木为屋,以避风雨”,盖茅屋居住下来。
神农於白天领着臣民到山上尝百草,晚上就着篝火的火光,把各种草药的性质,是苦、是热、是凉,那些可以治病,那些可以充饥,清清楚楚详细记载下来。



有一次,神农把一棵草放在嘴里一尝,立时晕眩摔倒,不能言语。臣民们慌忙扶他坐起,神农用仅有的一点力气,指着前面一棵红亮亮的灵芝草,又指指自己的嘴巴,旁人赶紧把灵芝草嚼烂,喂到神农嘴里。灵芝草把毒气解除,神农的头再也不昏了,说话的能力也恢复了,从此,人们就认识到灵芝草可以起死回生的功效。臣民担心神农这样尝草确实太危险,都劝他不如下山回去。神农摇头说:“ 不能回去!黎民百姓饿了没吃的,病了没医的,我们怎么能回去呢?” 说罢,又继续试尝百草。



尝遍了一个山头的花草,神农用木杆搭架,往…
