Exhibition about Japanese American A-bomb victims opens at Los Angeles museum via The Japan Times

LOS ANGELES – An exhibition featuring the U.S. atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki opened Saturday in Los Angeles, telling the stories of Japanese Americans who were in the two cities when the bombs were dropped in August 1945.

Marking the 75th anniversary of the bombings, the Japanese American National Museum will run the event through next June 7 in partnership with the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

During an opening event, Junji Sarashina, 90, a second-generation Japanese American who was in Hiroshima at the time of the bombing, said he hopes all future generations will learn about the horrors of atomic bombs through the exhibition.


Titled “Under a Mushroom Cloud: Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and the Atomic Bomb,” the exhibition includes artifacts belonging to atomic bomb victims and photograph panels on loan from the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum.

It displays a paper crane folded by former President Barack Obama that was presented to Hiroshima when he visited the city in 2016 as the first sitting U.S. president to do so.

The exhibition also shows photos depicting the suffering of Japanese American victims of the 1945 bombings.

“Our biggest issue is how to convey the extent of the damage to the next generation, as atomic bomb survivors are getting old and passing away,” said Takuo Takigawa, director of the Hiroshima museum.
