At 11.02 a.m. on August 9, 1945, the sky above Nagasaki was filled by a white flash, and all the clocks stopped.
A gigantic mushroom-shaped cloud soared up towards the blue sky. What’s going on? What’s happened to everyone? Even now the debris of the magnificent collapsed cathedral, torn clothes and melted bottles silently tell a story.
We will continue to relay a message of peace from Nagasaki, a message passed on by the survivors, who overcome great difficulties.
In the hope that the people of the world can join hands and face a future free of nuclear weapons.
