Remembering Hiroshima

On August 6, 1945, an American B-29 bomber named the Enola Gay, dropped on Hiroshima, a powerful atomic bomb. In an instant, 80,000 to 140,000 people were killed and 100,000 more were seriously injured. Every year there is in Como, a public event to commemorate what happened. The event is held near the Monument to the Resistance at the lakeside gardens.

This event is hosted near the Monument to the Resistance (a remembrance of the fight against Nazism and Fascism). This event is attended by secular and religious associations, veterans, public authorities, and rescue volunteers.

Near the Monument to the Resistance, there is a small bronze sculpture in memory of Hiroshima.

The municipal authorities lay a laurel wreath, and this is followed by a minute of silence.

On the Monument to the Resistance, there are some phrases commemorating the Shoah and the heroes of the Resistance. Here, a guard of honor pays tribute to the crown and to the victims of Hiroshima

The flag of the City of Como, the Italian, and the Japanese, are side by side to symbolize brotherhood among these nations.

To not forget and to say: “no more”.
