Hiroshima Commemoration Gilching 2022 —GERMANY

August 7, 2022

Dear colleagues, members and friends, 

On the evening of August 6, seventy-seven years after the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, the Pax Christi was once again invited to the commemoration of the Gilching Peace Stake. 

Below is a press release of Pax Christi Gilching (outside Munich)  of their Hiroshima Remembrance Day this year.

The Munich newspaper Münchner Merkur reported about it, too:

Each year, they gather around the Peace Pole, to commemorate the bombing of Hiroshima.

This year, too, the article says, the participants lit candles for each country in crisis or war.

May Peace Prevail On Earth.

University Ministry, Service, and Support (UMAS) helped facilitate the Peace Poles installation, in collaboration with the Multicultural and International Center. Assistant Vice President of UMAS Brother Bob Kinzler, FSC, said he envisions the Peace Pole being utilized during celebratory times in the academic and Lasallian calendars, like in September and October during International Lasallian Days for Peace.
