Testimony of Hibakusha (atomic bomb survivors)

  • Japan, as the only country which has ever suffered atomic bombings, continues to actively support its atomic bomb survivors, the Hibakusha, to share their stories with the people of the world.
  • With this objective, the Government of Japan has started to introduce to countries around the world and the young generation the first-hand experiences of the tragic consequences of the use of nuclear weapons by translating their stories into English and other languages, in cooperation with the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the United Nations.
