Ernesto Kahan, international vice president of Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War and honorary academician of the Royal European Academy of Doctors-Barcelona 1914 (RAED), recalls the figure and work of the Japanese writer Kyoko Hayashi, survivor of the atomic bomb of Nagasaki, who passed away on 19 February. Kahan recalls how Hayashi gave his life to fight against nuclear weapons and the use of nuclear power, as he wrote in his book “From Trinity to Trinity”.

“The generation of survivors of atomic bombs over Hiroshima and Nagasaki, as well as the other major genocides of the 20th century, such as the Holocaust, are disappearing. Those witnesses of the greatest ignominy generated by modern man against himself, to the memory, leaving his message -explains the academician-. The documents and thoughts written on pages of books, photographs and art samples remain to suggest a new path of coexistence and human harmony that wipes out wars and their genocides. I trust in the future and in the social responsibility of those who replace us”.
