At the United Nations Headquarters in New York, where the Review Conference of the NPT (Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty) is being held, a panel exhibition on the reality of the atomic bombing has begun, sponsored by the Japan Hidankyo (Japan Council of Atomic and Hydrogen Bomb Victims' Organizations).

This panel exhibition, held by Nihon Hidankyo in conjunction with the NPT Review Conference in the lobby of the United Nations Headquarters in New York, began on the 5th.

At the ceremony held prior to the event, Toshiichi Kido, a survivor of the atomic bombing in Nagasaki, said, "It reminds me of the scene I saw that day. The hope of the hibakusha not to create another hibakusha has continued until now. I am grateful to be able to hold a panel exhibition at

Approximately 50 panels were exhibited at the venue, including a picture of Hiroshima and Nagasaki immediately after the atomic bombing, a photo of a boy standing at a crematory, which is said to have been taken in Nagasaki after the atomic bombing, and a picture of a Hiroshima A-bomb survivor. People who have been involved in the movement and their activities are introduced, such as Mr. Nao Tsuboi, who passed away last year, and Mr. Senji Yamaguchi, who was the first atomic bomb survivor to call for the abolition of nuclear weapons at the United Nations.

Review Conference President Slaubinen also visited the venue and said, "It was very emotional. It reminds us that what we are discussing is not an abstract concept, but a real and dangerous weapon. It will be a difficult discussion, but I would like to do my best to realize a world without nuclear weapons."
