Hiroshima Nagasaki – Never Again! Attend a commemoration event near you. July 18, 2019

August 6, 1945. August 9, 1945.

Seventy-four years ago, the United States dropped nuclear weapons on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, two of the most horrific acts of warfare in history. This August, we remember the estimated two hundred thousand or more civilian men, women and children who died. We remember those who survived the bombing but suffered radiation poisoning, infections, severe burns, deadly cancers, and birth defects in infants.

“Each person who died had a name. Each person was loved by someone,” said survivor Setsuko Thurlow at the UN.

We remember so that we can prevent that atrocity from happening again. And yes, it could happen again, even here in the United States.

Join PSR chapters and other organizations around the country as we commemorate the attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and urge our leaders to prevent such a horror from ever happening again. PSR’s calendar lists commemoration events in 16 states and DC. See which one is nearest you.
