Join the IPB and esteemed speakers for an online gathering to remember and reflect on the atomic bombings in Hiroshima and Nagasaki 75 years ago. In commemorating the past, we are simultaneously outlining a plan for the future – one that includes the complete abolition of nuclear weapons. Speakers will share what the anniversary means to them, how it has influenced their lives and work, and how every individual can contribute to the campaign to ensure that the atrocities that occurred in Hiroshima and Nagasaki are never repeated.
