Project Description:

Based on reading picture books such as Machinto and ‘My Hiroshima’, and listening to the real voices of Survivors, participants will learn about where the dropping of nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki brought us to today. Students share their messages and activities for peace with other students in the world, so that people never forget Hiroshima and Nagasaki and never repeat this evil tragedy in the future.
