Hiroshima Day, 6 August

This day commemorates the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945.
The message of Hiroshima, as reflected in the lives of the survivors, is ‘Never Again!’

The promise on the Memorial Cenotaph at Hiroshima Memorial Peace Park reads: ‘Let All Souls Here Rest in Peace, For We Shall Not Repeat the Evil.’ 

See the Hiroshima Peace Memorial site: http://www.pcf.city.hiroshima.jp/top_e.html and also the Peace Building section of edna's Global Education website: http://www.globaleducation.edna.edu.au/globaled/go/pid/554

The wrecked framework of the Museum of Science and Industry as it appeared shortly after the the dropping of the atomic bomb in 1945.  City officials decided to preserve this building as a memorial though they had at first planned to rebuild it.  The dome has come to serve as a symbol of the destruction of Hiroshima.
