This post is a part of continuing series on the Censored Newspaper Articles (CNAs).
On October 20, 1947, Tokyo Shimbun submitted one article about the launch of “Sakura” – English written graphical magazine introducing Japan. The Civil Censorship Detachment(CCD) allowed Tokyo Shimbun to publish the article with a condition to delete some passage. Click the image to see the CCD documents stored with the Japanese galley. In the Japanese galley, the deleted section reads “誕生早々バイヤー、[や]GI間に大もてでPXに毎月二万部、米本國にも貿易品として第一号から渡ることになった.” (Prange Call No. 47-loc-1276)
The Prange Collection holds the galley of October 1947 issue of Sakura (Prange Call No. Za39). See the images below.
