atomic bombing

Discussion with Ms. Michiko Hattori, a survivor of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima

Every Second Counts for the Survivors! – Peace Boat Hibakusha event with #Youth4Disarmament

An event organized by Peace Boat and #Youth4Disarmament.

7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (New York)
Monday, 14 December 2020

Seventy-five years after the atomic bombings on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the world still faces the grave threat of the existence of nuclear weapons and a nuclear arms race, despite the 75-year-long plea for their total abolition by hibakusha, survivors of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, as well as Global Hibakusha – those impacted by nuclear testing, uranium mining and other nuclear development around the world.

As the hibakusha age, there are fewer opportunities to listen to their first-hand stories are becoming. We, therefore, must continue honoring the Hibakusha by celebrating their lives and work. To honor them we must not simply remember them, but we must discuss possible actions we can take together and individually.

A discussion among the panelists will be followed by a youth-led question-and-answer session.
