Birthplace ~ unsealing the life of the ship

by Tomoko Oyama
(Saitama, Japan)

One of the memorable tragedies in the sea is the sinking of the RMS Titanic. This is the reason why UEC was established as a school for practicing radio communication in the beginning.

The Titanic, which sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in 1912, had been built in Belfast, North Ireland. It was said to be an unsinkable ship at that time, but unfortunately, the iceberg collision led her to the misfortune which ended her maiden voyage.

In 2012, at the site of a shipyard in Belfast, a museum called "Titanic Belfast" opened on the 100-year anniversary of the tragedy. People can now know the history of the Titanic and Belfast, mystery, and legend.

It is said that after the tragedy, people in Belfast never talk about the Titanic. However, the passing of a long time has changed their mind little by little. I think it is a silent prayer for the victims by knowing what happened.

Is the pain of sadness soothed by the long lapse of time and the recollections of people who lived at that time?
