I visited today Hospital In Rock in Budapest and they had Hiroshima and Nagasaki atom bomb exhibition as part of the normal tour. It made me go back to the day trip I made to Hiroshima. Everyone was a little bit against it. “There may still be radiation. It’s not safe.” But I wanted to do this trip. I wanted to visit the city that I had always seen on my history books.
During these both visits Hiroshima two years ago and the exhibition yesterday, I realized one thing. They teach us wee in Finnish school. Or maybe it was just my History teacher who showed us all these videos and photos from the time of the atomic bomb. There was many people on the tour who didn’t know almost anything about the subject and who were terrified of the photos that were showed.
