The purpose of covering the messages, including notes and statements, on the website "Memories of Hiroshima and Nagasaki--Messages from Hibakusha" is to pass down hibakusha's hard experiences and memories and their wish for peace to the world. By releasing the messages, we set out to move toward the abolition of nuclear weapons and contribute to peace building.
However, each message includes hibakusha's personal information, such as family circumstances and clinical histories. Therefore, as a rule, the messages are not permitted for reproduction and use.
