The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum

Post by koimaster » August 2nd 2019, 9:24am

he Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum contains artefacts that have been donated by victims families and survivors relating to the event of 6th August 1945. In total there are over 120 timepieces held in the vaulted archives. Only a small selection of timepieces are on display as the sheer volume prevents the full collection being visible at any one time. The museum has a digital archive, and the items can be viewed online. A detailed explanation of the artefact is given with details of how the watch came into the museum's possession. Please note the write up is very personal, explaining injuries incurred by the victim. We have taken extracts, for a full description go to the link and enter the artefact number provided.

This online archive is a wonderful tool, but nothing replaces experiencing the Museum first hand. The full collection of watches and other items can be viewed here. http://a-bombdb.pcf.city.hiroshima.jp/p ... col_bombed

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

I have been to the Peace Museum. It is utterly devastating. Utterly.

Whilst I would recommend it be warned that you are not the same person when you leave.
