Setsuko Thurlow was at school when the building collapsed from the blast of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945.

Aged just 13, she saw her school friends horribly burned, many of them killed.

Setsuko has since travelled round the world to share her testimony, and warn people of the grave threat that nuclear weapons pose to humanity.
