HIROSHIMA: The annihilation of mankind in Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear bombings in World War II by the US will be on exhibit next month at Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum here.
The exhibition, “After the Bomb Dropped: How Hiroshima and Nagasaki Suffered,” will run from August 1 to 12. It will open at the historical hall ‘Friends House’ in cooperation with the Nagasaki municipal government and some British non-governmental organisations.
The exhibition will display 18 items related to the Atomic bombings, including a clock stuck at 8:15 am , the time when the nuke was dropped on Hiroshima on Aug 6, 1945, and 48 photo panels showing the cataclysm in the two cities following the attacks.
Nagasaki was bombed on Aug 9, 1945. Shozo Kawamoto, 76, from Hiroshima will share his experiences as an A-bomb survivor at the exhibition hall from Aug. 3 to 6.
Overseas A-bomb exhibitions have been held in 36 cities in 13 countries, including the United States and Britain, since 1995.
