Hiroshima-Nagasaki Commemoration in Downtown Columbus on Sunday August 6

Hiroshima-Nagasaki:
61 Years Later and the Horrors Continue



Commemoration, Reflection and Mourning

Sunday, August 6th
7:30 pm to 9:30 pm

25 Marconi Boulevard
Downtown Columbus

Directions: take High Street south or Front Street north to downtown. Hang west on Broad to Marconi boulevard and look for the Santa Maria reconstruction hanging out on the east bank of the Scioto river. This is Battelle Memorial Riverfront Park, where the commemoration will take place.

This event is planned as a simple, artful event with poetry and music augmenting speeches to mark the dropping of two atomic bombs by the United States 61 years ago. Yes, it can happen. No, it never should happen again.

Stand up for a peaceful future by standing in remembrance at this event.
