World Nuclear Weapons Ban Day (06/08)

Hiroshima Day, also known as World Day for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, is celebrated annually on August 6th.

A memorable, difficult date takes us to the historical events of August 1945 associated with the Second World War.

The creation of the atomic bomb in the United States and the first test of this type of weapon of mass destruction at the test site in New Mexico in July 1945 marked the beginning of a new stage in the life of mankind. From now on, no one could be insured against the all-destructive power of the new weapon and the horrifying consequences of its use.
