The 75th anniversaries of the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki will be marked slightly differently from usual. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, fewer in-person events will take place but the range of online events will allow even more people to get involved than in previous years. It will also allow us to connect to others marking this day across the world, most notably in Japan.
