A couple of atomic bomb survivors speak their A-bomb experiences. One speaker is Mr. Kazuhiko Futagawa, who was exposed to the atomic bombing while still in his mother’s womb. Another is Ms. Keiko Ogura, who was eight years old on the day of the atomic boming. She became famous for directly meeting with G7 leaders and Ukrainian President Zelensky at the G7 Hiroshima Summit and sharing her experience as an atomic bombing survivor.
After you listen to their experiences, you will have a chance to talk with the survivors and other partisipants.
