Father's Watch Never Moved Again - Djataro Ito, Japan 1985

(from the Hiroshima-45 series)


Today is the 75th anniversary of the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima by the United States, a horrific act that killed approximately 140,000 people either in the blast or the terrible after effects. The vast majority of these were civilians.


3 days later the United States dropped another atomic bomb on Nagasaki killing ten of thousands more, almost all of whom were civilians.


The fight for total nuclear disarmament and the abolition of these terrible weapons must continue.


Let there never again be another Hiroshima or Nagasaki.
