Hiroshima National Peace Memorial Hall

Hiroshima National Peace Memorial Hall

The Hall was founded by the Japanese national government to mourn the atomic bomb victims in 2002. It was designed by Kenzo Tange. There is another National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims in Nagasaki built for the same purpose.

The Hall is in Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park near Hiroshima Peace Memorial across the “Motoyasu River” by “Motoyasu Bridge”. The Hall curators are collecting atomic bomb memories and stories from the survivors to mourn the victims, as the survivors are aging. They are also collecting names and photographs of atomic bomb victims for the same purpose and for the same reason. From the collection, they are developing a project to “read the stories of the atomic bombing”.
