The Atomic Bombing Exhibition in Leiden, Netherlands is now open
Since the year 2005, the 60th anniversary of the atomic bombings, the Nagasaki National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims has been holding The Hiroshima/Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Exhibition in countries overseas.
This year, plans call for the exhibition to be held at Japan Museum SieboldHuis in Nagasaki’s sister city of Leiden, Netherlands from September 25 to February 14 (2021). Photographic panels about the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, testimonial videos by bombing survivors and other displays will be employed to convey the realities of the atomic bombings.
The following is a message from Kris Schiermeier, the director of SieboldHuis:
“I feel truly delighted that the exhibition The Atomic Bomb. 75 years after Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which we were forced to temporarily postpone due to the coronavirus, successfully opened on September 25. While coronavirus prevention measures mean that the number of visitors to the museum are only about a third of what they would ordinarily be, the media has shown a great deal of interest and, 75 years after the war, the message ‘This must never happen again’ is once again reaching our hearts.”
