Peace Boat Hibakusha Project

On Tuesday lunchtime, we hosted representatives of the Global Voyage for a Nuclear-Free World, who spoke to Sixth Form historians about the lessons from the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Ms Tsukamoto, an 84 year old survivor of the Hiroshima bomb, gave a moving testimony about her memories of the bomb and its aftermath, and the impact it had on her family, her life, and her country. As a ‘Hibakusha’ (a survivor of the atomic bomb), she is travelling the world on a 3 month voyage, spreading a message of peace.

We are very grateful that they chose to stop at Liverpool College on their way.
