Gertraud Führer, NGO,
representing KAZUO SODA, Hibakusha, read his message
to the visitors of the event.
I am one of the 250,000 A-bomb survivors. It is my great pleasure to share the commemoration of GENBAKU NO HI by conveying the profound eagerness of Hibakusha for a world free from nuclear threat.
I tried to attend this significant peace event. To my deep regret, physical disorder has prevented me from visiting Europe on a peace mission this summer.
Today nuclear abolition is undoubtedly the world stream which most of the peoples must and can go along. Even the U.S. President Obama emphasized in his Prague speech the necessity of building a world without nuclear weapons.
