Fumiko Hashizume

Ms. Hashizume was 14 years old when the US dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima. She has given testimony about the attack and its after effects (including radiation sickness) all over the world in an effort to create peace: ‘I like to meet with ordinary people and just share our common humanity. I think the human body and the human mind are marvelous creations, and so full of power! I firmly believe that every individual has the power to create peace in his or her own unique way. In my case, I do so by writing and by sharing my testimony with others.’
