A tiny, beautiful atoll hidden in the Pacific Ocean symbolises the relationship between earth and man: the story of man’s expansion and domination over each other and the world’s bounties. Aeons ago, around the rim of a volcano rising from the bottom of the sea, corals lived and died creating an atoll which grew above the waves. Legend tells us that the Reef God Worejabato gave this atoll to the people who came here. For centuries the Bikinians lived on the main island of the atoll living simply on what grew on land and the riches of the sea. For a long time their remoteness and the absence of wealth and riches saved them from colonisation. Towards the end of World War II 8000 Japanese were killed in the battle for nearby Kwajalein. The next day a US warship pulled into Bikini lagoon. The five Japanese soldiers guarding the watchtower on Bikini killed themselves with a grenade. Bikini was liberated, but the American forces had other plans for this paradise.
