This monument has a story of a young girl who survived the bomb but 11 years later contracted leukaemia and subsequently died. A reminder of the long term effects

I visited the Children's peace memorial when I visited the bomb dome and the museum. I found the Children's memorial peaceful and a great place to reflect and gather my thoughts after visiting the museum.
