In the Hiroshima-Nagasaki project, students from the Department of Japanese and Korean Studies are engaged in historical education work that is becoming increasingly important in light of the current global political situation. On behalf of the National Peace Memorial Halls in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the students are creating posters and videos about the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and translating eyewitness accounts of atomic bomb victims from Japanese into German. The results will be presented at the opening of the exhibition.
