Foreign War Victims' Memorial for the Elimination of Nuclear Weapons and Establishment of World Peace

(erected December 1981)

At the end of the Second World War many Allied prisoners were being interned at Nagasaki, as well as large numbers of forced laborers from China and Korea,and many of these people were killed in the atomic bombing or in earlier American bombing raids. This memorial is dedicated to these foreign victims of the war, and was erected on the 40th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack as a pledge to work for the end of all war and the elimination of nuclear weapons.
