Tree Donor

The West German Government

Date Donated

September 13, 1968

Reason for Donation

In March 1960,  Member of the Bundestag for Schweinfurt in Bavaria, West Germany, Dr. Max Schulze-Forberg accompanied  Konrad Adenauer, then Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, on a trip to Japan.

Struck by beauty of Japanese cherry trees, Dr. Schulze-Forberg resolved to establish a nursery of cherry tree saplings as part of initiatives to spread awareness of the importance of peace and disarmament. At the end of 1967, he reached out to the City of Hiroshima and requested 30 cherry tree saplings.
 
Hiroshima responded at the end of March, 1968, sending 15 Cerasus jamasakura cherry tree saplings and 15 Prunus x yedoensis cherry tree saplings to Schweinfurt by air. On April 5, Ambassador to West Germany Fujio Uchida, Vice-Minister of Education for Bavaria, former Chancellor of Germany Ludwig Erhard and many more attended a grand planting ceremony held in Gaibach on the outskirts of Schweinfurt.

In reciprocation, the City of Schweinfurt donated Duftwolke roses, a particular favorite of the late Chancellor Adenauer. Ninety-one roses (corresponding to the age at which Konrad Adenauer passed) were brought to Hiroshima by Dr. Schulze-Forberg on September 13, 1968.
