Hiroshima Peace Study Field Trip of National Taichung University of Science and Technology (Taiwan) 2023
On July 4 (Tue), students in the Department of Japanese Studies at National Taichung University of Science and Technology (Taiwan) learned about peace in Hiroshima as the Hiroshima-Nagasaki Peace Study Course. They visited the Peace Memorial Museum, the National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims, and Peace Memorial Park. Also, they listened to the testimony of an atomic bomb survivor.
This program is run as the university’s Hiroshima Peace Study Program, and also as a part of the Hiroshima City University’s short-term overseas study program based on their Memorandum of Understanding. This was the first trip after the program had been recognized as the Hiroshima-Nagasaki Peace Study Course this April.
Most of the students learned about peace in Hiroshima for the first time. They listened seriously to each word of the survivor and Hiroshima Peace Volunteers who guided them in the park. Through this program, they deepened not only their understanding about the realities of the atomic bombing but also their wish for peace.
