Cenotaph for the atomic bombing victims, by Erin Grace, CC BY-SA 3.0

This cenotaph contains a register of the names of all who died in the atomic bombing. The epitaph reads, “Rest in peace for we shall not repeat the error.” The artist clarified that “we” refers to humanity rather than Japanese or Americans.Through the cenotaph, you can see the Atomic Dome and the Peace Flame, which will burn until all nuclear bombs on the planet are destroyed.
