For World Peace

My father's experience of the Hiroshima atomic bombing

Record of My Father's Experience of the Hiroshima Atomic Bomb

On a personal note, I decided to share with you here my father's record of his experience of the Hiroshima atomic bombing which I have translated into English. I did not know about what really happened until he disclosed it 50 years after the war. This bilingual record has since been archived at the Imperial War Museum in London, the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC and Hiroshima National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims in Japan. Let us hope that the world will be filled with peace for all eternity.
