Cultural organisations will observe the tragic Hiroshima Day tomorrow by organising programmes at different venues to commemorate the deaths of hundreds of people in Hiroshima, Japan on August 6, 1945 following atom bomb attack by the US army.
Liberation War Museum will observe the day by decorating its office in Agargaon with paper-made white doves. The schoolchildren will inaugurate the event tomorrow morning. The programme will also feature display of posters that Liberation War Museum got from Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum.
Like the previous years, theatre troupe Swapnadal will stage its anti-war play Tringsha Shatabdi at the Experimental Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy tomorrow evening.
Adapted from the Indian playwright Badal Sircar’s play with the same title, Tringsha Shatabdi, directed and adapted by Zahid Repon, brings to light genocides that took place at different times in the world through interrogations of some historical characters like Einstein (who invented the theory of making atom bomb), Major Ferebee (the pilot of the aircraft that dropped the bomb on Hiroshima), and Major Claude Eatherly (who carried the nuclear bomb to Nagasaki and later became insane on his realisation of the crime).
The troupe will also display posters marking the day at the venue.
Japan-Bangla Peace Foundation will observe the day by organising a cultural programme tomorrow evening at Bangladesh National Museum.
