South Asian Public Forum commemorating Hiroshima Day
Monday, 6 August, Casuarina Hall, Indian Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road, NewDelhi
Hiroshima Day commemorates 6 August 1945, the day when an atomic bomb was dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima, followed a few days later by another dropped on the city of Nagasaki.
The bombings effectively ended World War II by bringing about the surrender of Japan, but at a terrible price - the two cities were destroyed and casualties, mostly civilians, were estimated at around 200,000, with many more people dying later from injuries and illness.
Hiroshima Day is now a focus for anti-war and anti-n
uclear discussions and demonstrations. The panel will include South Asian and international speakers. Collaboration: Insaf and Kriti team Phone: +91-11-26033088/ 26027845 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
