As a 13-year-old schoolgirl, Setsuko Thurlow survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. This is the remarkable speech she delivered at the United Nations on July 7, 2017 – the day when the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons was adopted at the United Nations.
A beautifully animated short film, If You Love This Planet brings to life Setsuko Thurlow’s passionate call to action.
Congratulations to all of the Hibakusha and the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) members who have worked tirelessly to achieve the abolition of nuclear weapons and were recently awarded the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, Norway.
