‘8.15 a.m., August 6, 1945. Our hometown was reduced to ashes by a single atomic bomb. The houses we came home to, our everyday lives, the customs we cherished – all were gone’.
This quote is from the Mayor of Hiroshima describing the dropping of the atomic bomb on his city 67 years ago today. You can read his full statment here.
To mark the anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki there is a small exhibition on display in the foyer of the Town Hall.
