Remembrance Gathering – Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

We are having a small gathering to remember this bombing.

DATE. 6th August

TIME. 1pm

LOCATION. Peace House.


The United States detonated two nuclear weapons over the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9, 1945, respectively, with the consent of the United Kingdom, as required by the Quebec Agreement. The two bombings killed between 129,000 and 226,000 people, most of whom were civilians, and remain the only uses of nuclear weapons in armed conflict.
