Atomic Bomb Survivors

Upon his visit to Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 2010, the United Nations Secretary General has launched an initiative to forge partnerships with governments and organizations to preserve and disseminate the testimonies of the Hibakusha (atomic bomb survivors) to ensure that their stories are available for generations to come. The testimonies by the survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki form an historical legacy that is a clarion call for promoting peace and for securing a world free of nuclear weapons. This webpage is dedicated to increase awareness and accessibility of the Hibakusha's testimonies for the purpose of disarmament and non-proliferation education by serving as a resource point for hibakusha related materials.
