Meeting of students of Lycée Albert 1er with a survivor of Hiroshima

The History-Geography course of a high school class at Albert 1er High School was dedicated on 7 November to a meeting organized under the auspices of ICAN (International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons) with Noriko Sakashita , who lived, at the age of 2, the bombing of Hiroshima, August 6, 1945.

In front of a very attentive young public, this "Hibakusha" (victim of a nuclear attack, in Japanese language) made known its rare and poignant testimony. During the explosion of his house, located more than one kilometer from the point of impact, this witness of History, was heavily wounded by the blast of the explosion and was exposed, during his evacuation, the phenomenon of black rain, laden with ash and radioactive dust.

Ms. Sakashita, a rare survivor of this nuclear disaster, is testifying throughout the world, promoting the creation of international links between entities working for peace, human rights and environmental protection by reminding that hope lies in the youth of this world.
