Joint IPPNW/IPB Statement on the 75th Anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki
Invitation to August 9 special worldwide screening
of “The Vow From Hiroshima”
As we recall the unprecedented horrors that the citizens of Hiroshima and Nagasaki experienced on August 6 and 9, 1945, we reaffirm the determination of our organizations to ensure that nuclear weapons are never used again.
