Truman’s grandson visits Hiroshima A-bomb memorial
Tokyo: A grandson of ex-US president Harry Truman, who ordered the atomic bombings of Japan during World War II, is visiting Hiroshima to attend a memorial service for the victims.
Clifton Truman Daniel visited the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park today and laid a wreath for the 140,000 people killed by the August 06, 1945, bombing authorised by his grandfather. Another atomic blast in Nagasaki three days later killed 70,000 more.
Daniel is in Japan to attend ceremonies in Hiroshima and Nagasaki marking the 67th anniversary of the bombings. His visit, the first by a member of the Truman family, is sponsored by a peace group named after Sadako Sasaki, an A-bomb victim who died of leukaemia after folding hundreds of paper cranes and is remembered as symbol of peace.
