Seventy-seven years after the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, this city in western Japan seeks to transfer its tragic history to a new generation of world leaders amid concern about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the escalation of tensions in Asia.

Hiroshima, the first city to be bombed with nuclear weapons on Aug. 6, 1945, will host the G7 meeting in May, from where it seeks to convey a message of peace and against nuclear weapons, before global leaders.
