Hiroshima National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims special exhibition
"Children of Hiroshima: Testament of
 the Boys and Girls of Hiroshima
"
 On August 6, 1945, one atomic bomb destroyed the city of Hiroshima in an instant, indiscriminately taking the precious lives of hundreds of thousands of people.
 Six years later, Hiroshima was busily rebuilding from war damage, when Genbaku no Ko (Children of Hroshima: Testament of the Boys and Girls of Hiroshima) was published, a collection of memoirs, written by children who survived it.

Leaflet (PDF/454KB)
 Recounted are days spent in tears, waiting for fathers and mothers who never came home; memories of affectionate elder brothers and sisters, and adorable little brothers and sisters, who were gone forever.
 This special exhibition highlights this still widely read collection of memoirs by atomic bomb survivors, in the hope of conveying the war and atomic bomb devastation experienced by children, as well as their thoughts on peace. Please listen to their hearts and words.
