Satomi Oba


Hiroshima on August 6th - a city, a symbol, and a call to end the atomic age.

The Japan Council against Atomic and Hydrogen Bombs (Gensuikyo) was established in September 1955. Since then it has waged various kinds of campaigns for: the prevention of nuclear war; the total ban on and the elimination of nuclear weapons; and support and solidarity with Hibakusha (victims of the atomic bombing.)

Remembering Satomi Oba

In February 2005, the world lost a tireless educator and activist for peace. For months before her abrupt passing (at age 54), Satomi was focused on the 60th anniversary of the destruction of the city she called home.
