Talk by A-bomb Legacy Successor (Available upon request)
A-bomb Legacy Successors offer lectures in which they present the A-bomb survivors’ experiences, the reality of the atomic bombing, and desires for peace.
As the A-bomb survivors are growing older and the number of testifiers are accordingly decreasing, Hiroshima City has been cultivating successors since the FY 2012 to pass down the survivors’ stories and wishes on their behalf. The A-bomb Legacy Successors who currently offer lectures have completed a three-year training course and started their activities in the FY 2015.
The length of each lecture is 60 minutes and comprises the following:
1) the experience of the A-bomb survivors and their wishes for peace which were passed on the successor; 2) the reality of the A-bombing (i.e. peoples’ daily lives during the war, overview of the A-bomb damages, and the A-bomb effects to the human body); and 3) the successors’ wish for peace.
Note: Some lectures are available in English.
Please be advised that you are expected to pay 2,000yen directly to the successor. Lectures held away from the Museum may require an extra fee to cover the successor’s travel expenses.
