The Memorial Monument for Hiroshima, a City of Peace (Memorial Cenotaph for the A-Bomb Victims) embodies the hope that Hiroshima will stand forever as a city of peace.
The stone chambers on the centre contain the Register of the Deceased A-bomb victims. The inscription on the front panel offers a prayer for the peaceful repose of the victims and a pledge, on behalf of all humanity, never to repeat the evil of war. It expresses the spirit of Hiroshima – enduring grief, transcending hatred, pursuing harmony and prosperity for all, as well as a yearning for genuine, lasting world peace.
