The cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are asking colleges and universities around the world to establish and promote Hiroshima-Nagasaki Peace Study Courses designed to analyze and disseminate A-bomb lessons as a common social and intellectual asset for humankind. “No one else should ever suffer what we did” is the fundamental message of the hibakusha (A-bomb victims and survivors). Hiroshima-Nagasaki Courses convey this message to future generations by exploring the facts of the bombings and the experiences of the hibakusha. By approaching the bombings through the arts and humanities, social and physical sciences, and the full spectrum of academic disciplines, students receive accurate information regarding the inhumane power and inherently illegal and immoral nature of nuclear weapons. This learning also facilitates an understanding of the reasons Hiroshima, Nagasaki and their A-bomb survivors have chosen the path of reconciliation.

The Nazi holocaust has been studied extensively around the world. As a result, no politician would dare to recommend gas ovens and ethnic cleansing as a solution to any problem. If the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were adequately studied, the same would be true for the “nuclear option.”

Currently, Hiroshima-Nagasaki Peace Study Courses have been established at 69 universities (48 in Japan, 21overseas).
