"Hiroshima and Nagasaki experienced the horrors of nuclear weapons for the first time in human history. The two cities were destroyed instantly and many lives were lost. Among those who managed to survive, suffering inflicted by the A-bomb radiation continues even to this day.

In order to prevent such a tragedy from happening again, Hiroshima City and Nagasaki City have been appealing to the world to recognise the importance of peace. Since 1995, they have been holding Hiroshima-Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Exhibitions all over the world in order to convey the realities of the atomic bombings and promote nuclear abolition. The exhibition is hosted in one or two cities overseas a year in nuclear nations, suspected nuclear nations, and cities active in nuclear abolition campaigns.

The exhibition consists of photographs of the aftermath of the bombings, everyday objects damaged by the bombings and art activities."
