The red one of the title is about the prisoners who are put on heavy work by wearing red jail clothes.

Although this work was a content spotlighted on prisoners worked by national policy in an extremely cold place set in Hokkaido in Meiji 14, this is not taken up in textbooks of Japanese history, but when it is an elementary schoolchild There is a memory that was only taken up in history manga that I read in the library.

Speaking of Meiji 14 year, it was 1881. In other words, disorder of Saga raised by Eto Shinpei et al. In 1874 and the war of the samurai such as the Southwest war caused by Saigo Takamori in 1877 have ended, and those who participated in the disturbance of that stranger are treasoners But instead of being put to death, they are taken to land like Hokkaido and work in harsh environments. How innocent it is!

In Japan, it used to be like this kind of things.

Nevertheless, in Japanese history, it is not even a matter of taking a bit of this, and I feel that the impression operation for trying to turn my eyes on this bad past in Japan was also done around here I will.

I would like to send my heartfelt compliments to the authors who turned out to look at it and sent it to the world as a novel.

Evaluation will be "highest" without complaint.

I talked about a prison in Hokkaido in the early Meiji era and I was reading and I knew that these things were ... in the shade of the Meiji era modernization.
The ronin at the end of the Tokugawa shogunate and the ronin who attached to the side of the shogunate army were carried as prisoners and they were engaged in work in the poor environment of prisons, and among them, they tried to escape or tortured It was hard to read the description ... added ... etc.

Managers of camps have changed a lot, too, the hardships of the managers are also unparalleled, and even though they have not been as much as sooner than now, they are keeping the life of the prisoners, and such prisoners When thinking about the environment of the people, or when the dead comes out ... it turned out that there were various difficulties. The part that had been bothered by such administrators' suffering and management is hit by the spot that people disappear in any part of the era that does not hit the shadow of the shadow, where they struggle to struggle there ... Being able to tell the sharpness of the viewpoint unique to the author.

Although the author has not historically been famous, or it places a spot on the common man, such eye-waving way is that even if there are any great people in that era, there were many different people from that It is directed to the part. From the viewpoint of such authors there is a feeling that the activities of great men reflect the aspect of history tend to be more realistic, more drastically.

It seemed like I was thinking how to paint in the condition of the present age, suffering from hygiene in prison, suffering from waste and excrement, and disease becoming popular. Even if it is not so, the minus image never gets away from the prison, so it can not be dispelled.

It is close to the last, heading towards closing, as you listen to such parts, there will be a part of relaxation. Certainly there is something to relax that a bad negative part is erased and it ends. I also felt something close to that of the Pacific War's reading and the end of the war in the history that the war ended at last, but on the other hand, the part of the party that is not part of the sacrifice ... ... I thought that ...

The figure of the prisoners opposing the Meiji New Government in the shade of Hokkaido's reclamation is painful, and it is understood in the present era, whether it is a part where such an environment actually existed and there, either a prisoner or an administrator The harder the hardships that can not be written, and the fact that these are just fragments of such a negative history, let us know the cruelty of history and the size of its shade. Darkness comes out contrary to light, and even if the light is very wide, there is no mistake that the shade part is big.
