A Japanese Atomic bomb survivor will visit Croatia next month, where he will talk about the day he evaded death. Takashi Teramoto, who survived the bombing of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, will recall that fateful day and its aftermath in talks in the Croatian capital Zagreb and in the Dalmatian town of Biograd na Moru.
As the only country to be a victim of the atomic bomb, every year the Japanese government send survivors of the bombing attacks abroad to be special ambassadors for ‘a world without nuclear weapons’ and talk about their experiences and remind the international community about the disaster left behind after the use of nuclear weapons.
Teramoto speaking dates in Croatia:
4 – 6. October: Zagreb – (Croatian Technical Museum, Museum School)
9 – 10 October: Biograd na Moru (Heritage Museum)
