U.S. film director Oliver Stone on Monday visited the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. Accompanied by Peter Kuznick, professor of history at the American University, Stone offered flowers to atomic bomb victims in front of the cenotaph.
Afterwards, the director walked around the Atomic Bomb Dome, a landmark of the aftermath of the 1945 atomic bombing in Hiroshima. Stone said he felt bad, like the walking dead, after seeing exhibits related to the atomic bombing.
Stone and Kuznick, co-author of "The Untold History of the United States," are in Hiroshima to meet with atomic bombing survivors while attending the annual international meeting against the atomic and hydrogen bombs in the city which marks the 68th anniversary of the world's first atomic bombing Tuesday.© Japan Today/AP
