Beautiful, awful, moving... fiction and non-fiction, poetry and prose, from around the world are brought together here to give hope for peace, and convey the need for peace. Although this is in memory of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the lessons are global and timeless. This should be read widely, for the need for peace remains are urgent as ever.
