70 images Created 22 Jun 2010
Hiroshima, the city where the first atomic bomb was dropped during WWII, is now a peaceful living city where the monuments reminding the bombing are integrated in it's everyday life. More emphasis in not forgetting is put by the exhibits of the Peace Memorial Museum in the center of the city and also center point of the bomb's explosion. In connection with the museum, a few still living "hibakusha" or survivors of the bombing, are campaigning against the use of nuclear weapons by giving speeches and occasionally displaying the marks that the bombing left on their bodies.
