“Rest In Peace, For The Error Shall Not Be Repeated”

Hiroshima Peace Memorial

Memorial Monument For Hiroshima City Of Peace. The saddle shaped structure straddles a cenotaph that lists the names of all victims of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. The epitaph on the cenotaph reads “Rest in peace, for the error shall not be repeated”. In the background, frozen in time, is the ravaged shell of the building known as the ‘A Bomb Dome’.
