"IT IS THE PRIVILEGE OF THE VICTIMS OF HIROSHIMA TO
REMIND THE WORLD NEVER TO SEE THIS DISHONOR TO MANKIND
REPEATED • "
The Seattle Peace Information Center, 2308
Third Avenue, is presenting the Hiroshima
Exhibit at the Seattle World's Fair Coliseum.
The purpose of the Hiroshima Exhibit is not
to frighten or accuse. Its purpose is to
demonstrate the immorality and self-defeat of
modern war and to appeal to every individual
to work actively toward a peaceful world.
In bringing the Hiroshima Exhibit to this country,
neither we of the Peace Center nor the people of Hiroshima desire to dwell upon the past. On the contrary,
it is the future which concerns us. The Hiroshima
Exhibit offers us a glimpse of what that future must
surely be unless the nuclear arms race is halted. But
this exhibit gives only an incomplete view of such a
future. For the Hiroshima bomb was of inconsiderable
power compared to today's nuclear bombs, which range up
to twenty-five hundred times the size of the bomb that
fell on Hiroshima.
No ultimate political purpose can be served by reliance
upon such weapons. The political rights we cherish,
the freedoms we wish to extend, cannot be furthered by
nuclear warfare; they can only perish in the holocaust.
Morally, the adoption of a policy of preparedness to
use these weapons means the abandonment of ethical
