A-bomb drawings

The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum holds thousands of “A-bomb Drawings by Survivors,” which describe the artists’ own experiences of the A-bombing. These drawings and paintings, most of which were collected in 1974, 1975 and 2002, are records of the A-bombing by Hiroshima citizens. They are precious testimonies that illustrate the devastation that nuclear weapons hold in store for human beings. We also have a series called “The Hiroshima We Miss,” a collection of paintings that depicts Hiroshima City and its citizens’ lifestyles before the A-bombing.
