A Los Alamos team arrived Aug. 4 in Hiroshima, Japan carrying a Proclamation of Friendship from Los Alamos County. The proclamation was presented to Chairperson Yasuyoshi Komizo of the Hiroshima Peace Culture Foundation and Director Kenji Shiga of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum.

“It was a historic meeting,” said Judith Stauber, founder of the Los Alamos/Japan Project and director for the Los Alamos History Museum. “We articulated our goals for a partnership that encourages dialogue, common ground, and desire to work together to create a new and more complete history.”

Stauber went on to say, “There has been great media interest in the meeting and in the History Museum’s first official visit to attend the memorial ceremony marking the exact time that the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima 72 years ago.”
