5 50th Anniversary Commemorative Monument at Peace Park in Nagasaki, Japan

There are about 50 monuments for peace in Nagasaki. Many of them are located on Nagasaki Peace Hill. The 50th Anniversary Commemorative Monument by local sculptor Naoki Tominaga is especially poignant. According to the plaque, the sickened child represents Japan after the atomic bomb and the somber yet compassionate mother are other countries who provided support. This image is also a reminder that 70% of the approximate 70,000 who died were women, children and seniors.
