    Background: FOUR JAPANESE HAVE MADE A 33,000 MILE PILGRIMAGE FROM HIROSHIMA -- THE JAPANESE CITY SHATTERED BY THE FIRST ATOMIC BOMB IN AUGUST 1945 -- TO OSWIECIM, POLAND, SITE OF HITLER'S AUSCHWITZ CONCENTRATION CAMP.

    THE GROUP, LED BY A BUDDHIST MONK, MICHIKO SATO, LEFT HIROSHIMA ON FEBRUARY 6, 1962, AND TRAVELLED THROUGH 23 COUNTRIES, ON FOOT, BY TRAIN AND SHIP, ON THEIR WAY TO POLAND.
