Hiroshima National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims

Hiroshima National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims opened in August 2002, aiming to mourn the lives lost in the atomic bombing and pray for everlasting peace as a country, as well as to deepen the understanding of people around the world of the tragedy caused by the atomic bomb, and to hand down Hiroshima's experience of the A-bombing to future generations.
In the memorial hall, the Hall of Remembrance recreates a view of the A-bombed city seen from ground zero, a space in which visitors can quietly pay tribute to the A-bomb victims, and contemplate peace. This memorial hall also offers visitors an opportunity to view and listen to materials such as A-bomb memoirs and survivor testimony videos, and puts the names and photos (portraits) of deceased A-bomb victims on public view.
Furthermore, reading sessions of A-bomb memoirs and poems about the atomic bombing are held. The situation of the A-bombing is conveyed to the visitors with a feeling of real life when they listen to the recitations and read aloud these memoirs and poems themselves. Please touch the victims' souls and words in this memorial hall.
