Remembering Hiroshima and Nagasaki

05 August 2015

Please don't make any more like us. We don't want any more hibakusha

This is the prayer of the survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki - also known as "hibakusha". They came together to share their painful memories, and to sing in protest at the terrible events that they can never forget - like how so many people looked relatively well after the bombing, then suddenly got very ill and died from radiation sickness.

Our lives and those that we loved, burnt up and gone
