(RSVP below to receive a reminder)


The two atomic bombs dropped on Japan in 1945 killed and maimed hundreds of thousands of people, and their effects are still being felt today. Every year, the Peace Memorial Ceremonies are held in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and around the world to remember the victims and ensure not to repeat the evil. On August 6 and 9, join ICAN, Peace Boat and local partners for two live streams to show the atmosphere in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, reflect on the significance of this anniversary, and mark the moment of silence.

The August 9th stream will include a unique series of historic photos of some of the people whose lives were lost due to the atomic bombing, and take you back to what daily life was actually like at the time. The hosts will also show you the Sanno shrine, a site heavily marked the atomic blast in Nagasaki, despite being 900m from the hypocenter, its surviving camphor trees and the one-legged Torii have become monuments to what was lost.

The livestreams are free, and will remain online to accommodate people across different time zones. But if you would like to receive a reminder when the livestream is about to start, please RSVP. Learn more about the Hiroshima livestream on August 6th here.

Please note you can find more information about the Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Victims Memorial Prayer, organised by the City of Nagasaki here.
