Mayor Shinzo Hamai's Peace Declaration and "A Revolution of Thought"
Exactly two years after the bombing of Hiroshima, Mayor Shinzo Hamai delivered the first Mayorial “Peace Declaration” of Hiroshima. In that historic document, he urges us to use the bombing as a call to action for peace and the abolition of nuclear weapons.
Following Mayor Hamai's vision, Hiroshima was rebuilt, by law, to be a “peace city”. As part of this mandate, the city provides education aimed at building a culture of peace. This exhibition is one of the ways that Hiroshima reaches out into the world in its effort to build a culture of peace.
