義父と2.26事件

Posted on August 13, 2020 at 5:53 AM

職人の義父
もう92歳になる義父は荻窪で戸建て住宅に携わる職人をしていた。

妻の話では若い頃は仕事三昧
家族旅行や どこかに連れていってもらったという記憶がないという。
家族で出かけるのは 盆暮れの義母の田舎帰りくらいだった。

独身の職人を何人も住まわせていた。
この頃は休みも少なく働きづめだったという。

妻はサラリーマンの週1回の休みのある家庭に憧れをもっていたらしい。

昭和30年からはじまる就職列車
それもそのはず。
確かに私達が育つた時代は
高度経済成長の只中だった。

地方から上京した人たちは少し金銭的に豊かになると
皆 競って家を買った。

家 すなわち一国一城の主。

家を持ってはじめて東京人のはしくれになれた。
田舎にも錦を飾れる
ーそんな気持ちになれた。

義父もまさに高度経済成長のど真ん中で家を造っていた。

義父との昔話
妻の実家に行くと義父とよく昔話をしていた。
子供の頃の遊びの話や仕事の話。

そして、話も佳境になると決まって鮮烈な義父の記憶。
2.26事件の話題になった。

渡辺教育総監(陸軍大将)。
昭和11年2月26日発生した。
大規模な陸軍下士官を中心とする反乱事件が起きた。
2.26事件。

義父はその日の早朝 自宅前の商店街を騒がしく走る
反乱軍のざわめきを聞いていたという。

朝が明けると 渡辺教育総監が殺害されたという話が伝わってきて愕然。
義父の家からそう遠くないところに渡辺教育総監の家があった。

陸軍大臣、参謀総長、と並ぶ3権といわれた教育総監。
なぜ陸軍の最高幹部が同じ陸軍の若手将校に襲われたのか?
戦争への道筋を決定づけた事件となった。

なぜ渡辺教育総監は殺害されたのか、

私にとって、義父の話は当時の世情を学ぶきっかけとなった。 

渡辺教育総監は、若い頃、ドイツに駐在していて
泥沼の第一次大戦で疲弊した欧州各国の現実をつぶさに見ていた。

「非戦」思想を持つようになったという。

そして、その目的を達するために日本は軍事力を整備しなくてはいけないと考えた。

戦争は悲惨なもので絶対に避けなければならない。

戦争を避けて平和に済ますことが出来ればこれに越したことはない。
しかし、利害を異にする国家間の紛争は年々大きくなっている。

国家間の調整は難しい。

国際連盟、軍縮会議の状況を見ても明らかで
方針をまとめることさえできていない。

だから日本は万一に戦争を仕掛けられても
絶対に負けないだけの強い軍事力を備えることが重要。

この軍事力を持てば、恐らく戦争には巻き込まれることはない。

中国をめぐるアメリカと日本の覇権争いの中で
マスコミや若手の将校達の中に戦争を望む声が大きくなっていく。

戦わないための軍事力ではなく
戦うための軍事力。
大きく流れを変えた事件が2.26事件だった。

現在の世界情勢は変化している。

コロナの影響でボランティア活動も ようやく一ヶ所で復活したばかり。

8月の話題はいつも原爆、日航機墜落事件、玉音放送。

もう10年以上もこの話をしている。

私なりに、少しづつ歴史に対する理解も深まっていると思う。

歴史は繰り返すという。
繰り返さないため?
ふと考える。

I have to show my appreciation to you just for bailing me out of this problem. Because of surfing around throughout the the net and coming across notions that were not pleasant, I thought my life was gone. Being alive without the presence of strategies to the problems you have resolved by way of your main article is a crucial case, as well as the ones that could have badly affected my entire career if I hadn't noticed your web blog. Your main ability and kindness in dealing with every part was excellent. I am not sure what I would've done if I had not discovered such a solution like this. It's possible to now look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot so much for this professional and result oriented guide. I won't think twice to endorse the website to any person who should have guide about this subject matter.
