Erection date: 27/4/1983
We the citizens of Hiroshima ever mindful of this cruel experience clearly foresee the extinction of mankind and an end to civilization should the world drift into a nuclear war.
Therefore we have vowed to set aside our griefs and grudges and continuously pleaded before the peoples of the world to abolish weapons and renounce war so that we may never again repeat the tragedy of Hiroshima.
Mayor of Hiroshima
6 August 1976
Site: Maygrove Peace Park (8 memorials)
NW6, Maygrove Road, Maygrove Peace Park
The park was built on former railway sidings and opened on 27 April 1983, to coincide with the 38th anniversary of the dropping of the atomic bomb on Nagasaki. It contains a cherry tree, which commemorates the one that continued to bloom after the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima.
The (non-memorial, as far as we can tell) sculpture sitting on the boulder is called Untitled (Listening) (1983-4), and was sculpted by Antony Gormley, so he was probably the model as well. The inscribed stones are laid into the tarmac path near the sculpture.
