Liberation War Museum, in collaboration with Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, Japan, arranged an online exhibition commemorating Hiroshima Day. The exhibition, titled, From disaster to a New Future, was inaugurated by H E Ito Naoki, Ambassador of Japan in Bangladesh. 75 years ago, on August 6, an atomic bomb was dropped in the city of Hiroshima and then three days later, in Nagasaki. The Liberation War Museum has been celebrating this day for the last few years to honour the victims of this tragedy.
"I am pleased to learn that the Liberation War Museum has been taking initiatives to enhance awareness among the people of Bangladesh against war and proliferation of nuclear weapons," said Ito Naoki. He hopes that the museum will keep up their commendable efforts.
Under the supervision of Mofidul Hoque, one of the founder trustees of the Liberation War Museum of Bangladesh, the online exhibition launched two videos, one in English and one in Bengali, where school children narrated the details of the exhibition. The children also participated in the exhibition by making origami paper cranes.
The Archive & Display team of the museum is also preparing for their third online exhibition titled, Bangabandhur Jibone Sur O Chhander Jhonkar.
