In additions to collection of edited Hibakusha testimonials and historical footage, Mr. Robert M Horsting will be sharing related information and stories.

After August 6, 1945, over 70,000 died within a week, and close to 200,000 people were injured.

Among injured, 70,000 died by the end of 1945 in Hiroshima.

On August 9, 1945, estimated 40,000 were killed in Nagasaki with 40,000 injured.

By the end of 1945, combined estimated number of victims who died from the effects of the atomic bomb were over 220,000.

Among those killed in Hiroshima were an estimated 1,000 Japanese Americans.

In the 1970s. it was confirmed that 12 United States airman who were POWs, were also victims of Hiroshima atomic blast.

The intent of “Shadows for Peace” is not to debate the why’s or wherefores of the dropping of the atomic bombs, but to “educate and engage” attendees of the horrific destructive power of nuclear weapons which  today are hundreds of times powerful and deadly.

“Shadows for Peace” is 501 c 3 non-profit organization.
