    Fumiko Okusawa is a 33 year old Japanese ballet dancer, who is a member of Theater Nordhausen in Thuringen, Germany. She has lived in Germany for 9 years, while her parents in Otawara-city, Tochigi, Japan. She heard a shocking news of East Japan Earthquake in Nordhausen, Germany, which is 9,000km away from where her parents live. Since then, she had been eager to give a concert to support her home country, Japan. When she talked directly to the manager of Theater Nordhausen, not only the manager, but also its orchestra members, chorus members, and ballet dancers agreed to organize a charity concert.
On April 2nd, the concert was held and a large audience of 451 appreciated its ballet and chorus performances for 2 and a half hours. Some Japanese songs were introduced to the audience as well. The total amount of donation was 10,000 euro (about 1.2 million yen). It will get to the devastated area via the Red Cross. Ms. Okusawa was moved to find that so many people had offered their condolences and support.

Nordhausen in Thuringen is not a big city, located in the center of Germany. The state of Thuringen is known as the “green heart of Germany”, full of nature. I was really encouraged to know that the people there, including the mayer and the state minister had prayed and supported for Japan.
