In association with Hiroshima Peace Culture Foundation,the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and Brisbane Square Library, InterCultural Consulting Group is honoured to present this moving exhibition about the horrific events that ended World War 2. The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaski introduced the world to the power of the atomic bomb. This incredible exhibition explores these events that occurred 68 years ago. On display are 6 original artifacts from the destroyed cities. Of special tribute, the exhibition also explores the story of two men. Keijiro Matsushima was 16 and survived the bombing. He now tells his story to ensure that there are no more Hiroshimas. His is a moving and graphic account of events. Dan Crane was a British Commonwealth Occupation soldier sent to Japan to maintain Peace and rebuild the shattered Hiroshima. Now deceased, Dan's story is an insightful window into the experiences he faced. A photographic and artifacts display are part of the exhibition.

The BCOF story is a little told account of soldiers in this far off land. many still fight for recognition. They were in fact our first a International Peace Keeping Force. Join us for the opening event.

All details are available on the exhibition website above.
