Commemorating 68th anniversary of Hiroshima
Rochdale and Littleborough Peace Group members met at Hollingworth Lake this evening (6 August 2013) to remember all those who have suffered in war and especially the victims of the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945.
They were marking the 68th anniversary of the first atomic bomb which was dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima by the United States of America on 6 August 1945. They shared readings and floated lanterns on the lake in memory of victims of war.
Pat Sanchez, on behalf of the Peace Group said
