In Japan I had to write about the 50-year anniversaries of, first, the atomic bombs of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which ended the war in the Pacific, and then, in Germany, the end of the war itself, when the Red Army rolled into Berlin and the Nazis finally surrendered. I was — and am — all for anniversary journalism.
