“Memories of Hiroshima and Nagasaki: Messages from Hibakusha” Now in English

This is a news announced last October, but I would like to post to my blog since I think it is important.

The Asahi Shimbun has launched the English version of its website “Memories of Hiroshima and Nagasaki: Messages from Hibakusha.” This website currently contains first-hand accounts and messages from 200 A-bomb survivors as collected by the Asahi Shimbun. It will eventually contain a total of 370 testimonies. Over 350 volunteers worldwide have helped translate the testimonies into English.

We launched the Japanese version of this website in November 2010 in order to let the world know the reality of A-bomb radiation exposure and the survivors’ earnest hope for peace. The Japanese-language website contains accounts and messages from 1,651 A-bomb survivors. The contents are drawn from a survey of  hibakusha conducted by the Asahi Shimbun in 2005 in cooperation with the Japan Confederation of A- and H-bomb Sufferers Organizations and Hiroshima and Nagasaki Universities.
