Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum-- Passing Down Hiroshima's Memories
Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum opened 10 years after the Atomic bomb was dropped, and it re-opened on April 25, 2019 after renovations. With a focus on real-life pictures, the museum displays mementos from those who perished, as well as pictures from the time of the bombing, and paintings from those exposed to radiation. What are the thoughts of those who donated the mementos? What about the thoughts of elementary students in Hiroshima? Even people such as President Obama and the Pope have come to visit this museum. The son of the first director of the museum talks about his father's thoughts on the museum. How will the new generation handle Hiroshima's wish for abolition of nuclear weapons?
