Historical Truth Shatters Americans
A-Bomb Exhibitions in Hawaii and NY

Hiroshima Peace Memorial

One month has passed since President Obama’s visit to Hiroshima.

In his speech at the site, Obama further promoted the realization of a nuclear-free world. As the situation now stands, however, with North Korea conducting nuclear experiments and the U.S. increasing their budget for nuclear development, his ideals are a far off dream.

Most disappointing was the absence of an apology to the atom bomb victims of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in his speech. The dropping of the atom bomb was the worst crime against humanity in the history of the world. If the U.S. properly faces this historical truth and reflects upon it, the path to world peace will be closer at hand.


Local Newspaper Reports that Approximately 700 People Attended

El Cantare Foundation, an independent trust supported primarily by Happy Science members, opened an exhibition on the ‘bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki’ in Hawaii to spread the true history of the atom bombings. The exhibition opened at 9 am and within 3 hours, around 700 people had visited including a local councilor. There was even a greeting made by a Kauai municipal officer at the opening.

The exhibition had on display details of U.S. socio-politics leading up to the atom bombings, and pictures and photographs of the victims. The local newspaper, The Garden Island, reported the occasion, and it was printed on the front page.
Before the Hawaii exhibition, the El Cantare Foundation had held the same exhibition in New York. It had 117 visitors, and below are several comments they made:

“When the exhibition organizer said that the atom bombings were worse than the Holocaust, I didn’t believe it; but after seeing this exhibition today I realized my mistake.” (Comment by a Japanese-American)

“The atom bombings were a result of racism, without a doubt.” (Comment by an American)

“I’ve wanted to hold an exhibition like this myself, but I didn’t think America would let me. I can’t believe I’m here. I would like to help with the organizing next time.” (Comment by a Hiroshima-born American)

The atom bombings exhibit became a starting point for Americans to think about the danger of nuclear weapons and of world peace. The El Cantare Foundation will continue its activities in the hope of realizing true world peace.
